Wigtown – Scotland’s National Book Town

 
Home » Town/Village » Wigtown – Scotland’s National Book Town
wigtown town hall

Find a great read in Wigtown, Scotland’s Book Town, investigate gruesome drownings of martyrs and Neolithic stone circles or visit the nearby RSPB centres.

There are 30 book related businesses in Wigtown and its sister villages Bladnoch and Kirkinner which offer a varied range of books: Scottish and Irish writing as well as English literature; antiquarian and illustrated books; rare and unusual literature; first editions and collectables; special interest and children’s books.

The town hosts bookbinders, publishers and arguably the largest traditional second hand book-shop in Scotland outside of Edinburgh and the printer of the smallest books in the world. One of the shops has a small café at the rear (16 covers) and another houses a gallery selling pictures, local crafts and a framing service to gallery standards.
