Local MP Dr Eilidh Whiteford helped commemorate Strichen novelist Nora Low, better known as Lorna Moon.
The local community council has erected two plaques in the village – one in North Street and the other at the former Temperance Hotel on High Street, to highlight the controversial author's links with the village. Dr Whiteford was accompanied by local councillor and Doric Festival organiser Sandy Stronach.
Speaking in Strichen, Dr Whiteford said:
"Eighty years after her death, I'm glad she's been forgiven, and her talents have been recognised. These plaques are a worthy tribute to one of the most successful writers ever to come out of North-east Scotland."
