Biggar Museums Trust Brownsbank Committee

The Brownsbank Committee is responsible for the maintenance of Brownsbank Cottage following the death of Hugh MacDiarmid’s widow, Valda Trevlyn, in 1989. All the contents have been catalogued and the cottage, its gardens and outbuildings are all maintained by Biggar Museum Trust volunteers. Visitors are welcome by appointment.

The Brownsbank Committee is also charged with ensuring Brownsbank Cottage remains a centre of literary activity, and from 1993 maintained a writing residency – the Brownsbank Fellowship – in association with the Scottish Arts Council and South Lanarkshire Council.
