Typewriter Belonging to Neil Gunn
Dunbeath Heritage Museum

This Corona Four typewriter belonged to renowned Highland author Neil Gunn. The job of a novelist was conducted very differently from nowadays when writers are able to quickly edit and delete during the writing process.

Neil Gunn was one of the most important writers of Scottish fiction in the early twentieth century. His works explore Highland life, including the impact on communities of the Highland Clearances. He was awarded the prestigious James Tait Black Memorial Prize in 1937 for Highland River.
