2013 Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun Awards

William McIlvanney awarded the 2013 Saltire Society Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun Award.

The Society’s Council was unanimous in their support for the award noting McIlvanney’s particular contribution to Scottish literature, inspiring and influencing new generations of Scottish writers, and enthralling and entertaining readers in Scotland and internationally. As a previous winner of the Saltire Book of the Year Award for his novel ‘The Kiln’ our recognition of his achievements is long standing.
