A blog from the Howe o' the Mearns

Who else did Sunset Song for Higher English? (There are much worse books, but if the Scots Quair is a landmark, I shouldn't care to read the Grotty Bits of West Lothian of Scottish literature. Perhaps the web-page writer meant a bing.) I was always gently pleased after that to see "Howe o' the Mearns" in real estate ads in the Scottish Farmer.
The blog appears to have no connection, beyond the geographical one, with Lewis Grassic Gibbon/James Leslie Mitchell or his books.
Maybe I am being unkind. I haven't looked at the book since fifth year. Which was some time ago.
