Home – Poet and Writer
History and landscape enthusiast. Lover of pubs old or undiscovered. Hugh McMillan lives and works in Penpont in Dumfries and Galloway and is available for readings, workshops and talks.
“To hear Hugh McMillan read his poems is to be in the presence of a comedian of genius, as he delivers line after line of punching humour in a slightly surprised, smiling voice, so that we laugh and laugh but are left well aware that life isn’t funny.”
“One of the best and funniest readers I’ve heard.”
“The Scottish literary scene seems to me crowded with excellence, but McMillan is unique”
“Hugh McMillan’s poetry……works like resonant and intricately packed short stories.”
“Poems that I think are special, at once local, personal and universal. Treat yourself.”
