The Neil Munro Society was founded in 1996 to encourage interest in the works of Neil Munro (1863-1930). It organises an annual programme of talks and other events in Munro's home town of Inveraray and in Glasgow and attracts leading authorities on Scottish literature and history to address its meetings. An ever-growing membership in Britain and overseas testifies to the revival of interest in Munro and his work as a novelist, short story-writer, journalist, critic and poet.

2001 saw the unveiling of a memorial slab to Neil Munro in the Makars' Court in Edinburgh.In 2002 a memorial bench was installed at the waterfront in Inveraray.The Neil Munro Medal,awarded to the most distinguished student in the Department of Scottish Literature at the University of Glasgow, was presented for the 5th time in 2007. Also in that year, a fine new path was laid to the Neil Munro monument in Glen Aray. All but one of Neil Munro's works of fiction have been reprinted.

A Munro Archive is now available on this site to assist with your research into Munro's life and work. Members can also buy copies of all Munro titles currently in print at discounted prices. Membership is open to all individuals, organisations, and institutions.
