Alasdair Gray

We are deeply saddened to learn of Alasdair Gray's death. To say Alasdair was a one of a kind , only scratches the surface of this remarkable man.

Immensely important to Scotland and internationally, Alasdair, his work and influence have never been confined by genre and can be seen in a myriad of art forms.

His inspiration has reached generations and will continue to do so for many years to come.

We were honoured to have presented Alasdair with the inaugural Saltire Society Lifetime Achievement Award in November, and to have the opportunity to celebrate his tremendous talent in this way.

Scotland has lost a true master of creativity.

Our thoughts are with Alasdair's family and friends at this time.
