Mr F and I visited Wigtown in Dumfries and Galloway at the weekend. It's "Scotland's Book Town" with 19 bookshops (which I think was started 10 years ago as a regeneration project). The town is an ancient one with a harbour (now a lonely spot) going back to the thirteenth century. Here's an image from their website:
We're planning to go back for the festival in September, featuring Christopher Brookmyre among many other authors.
We also visited Kirkcudbright, the town where Jessie M King the illustrator lived.
Her house is now a B&B. There are many artists in the town nowadays as well and they have an open-studios week in July.
So not much reading done over the weekend but a literary location visited, as well as an artistic one.
