Wigtown is a traditional market town, set in the beautiful countryside of Dumfries and Galloway, South-West Scotland. It is also Scotland’s National Book Town, a designation that reflects its dozen or so second-hand bookshops and annual literary festival.
Founded in 1999, the 10-day Wigtown Book Festival is now one of the UK’s best-loved literary events, offering more than 200 sessions and activities for all ages that include music, theatre, food and visual arts. The Guardian has called it “the sort of festival people become possessive about.” Colin has worked at the festival photographer since 2011.
