The John Buchan Society    


The John Buchan Society (Honorary President Lord Tweedsmuir) was founded in 1979 to perpetuate the memory of John Buchan and to promote a wider understanding and appreciation of his life and works.

Among the Society’s aims are:

  • to hold regular meetings and social gatherings (in the UK or locally by arrangement)
  • to produce a Journal (to be distributed at no extra charge to all members of the Society except Associate Members)
  • to encourage the publication of a Complete Edition of Buchan’s Works (including all those currently out of print)
  • to support the ‘John Buchan Story’ Museum in Peebles, Scottish Borders
