Nan Shepherd's Sun Porch, Date unknown

Brander Library, The Square

Oil on panel


This work was donated to Deveron Projects and the town of Huntly by one of its patrons, Barbara Balmer. It depicts the porch of Nan Shepherd (1893-1981), a key figure in Aberdeenshire writing and poetry. Shepherd was known for her emphasis on local speech and dialect in her novels, one of which (The Quarry Wood) might relate to the quarrying of Battlehill Woods in Huntly.
