Sunset song

Sunset Song by Lewis Grassic Gibbon has been voted Scotland's favourite book in a poll for the BBC's Love To Read campaign.

The top 10 novels in the survey included contemporary and classic works by authors born or based in Scotland.

The Wasp Factory by Iain Banks was placed second, followed by Lanark by Alasdair Gray and The Thirty Nine Steps by John Buchan.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by JK Rowling was also commended.

The results of the public vote, conducted by BBC Scotland in partnership with The Scottish Book Trust and The Scottish Library and Information Council, were announced in a special programme presented by Kirsty Wark.

Over the summer, online voters chose from a list of 30 novels which were selected by a literary panel curated by the Scottish Book Trust.
