Launched in August 2014, The Open Book is a unique project that invites writers, artists and thinkers to Scotland’s book town to run a bookshop for a short period of time. It is designed to bring new creative talent to Wigtown and to raise awareness of issues facing booksellers everywhere. It is run through AirBnB and currently fully booked until August 2020. Watch this space for more opportunities to visit Scotland's National Book Town.


The Open Book shop (formerly Book Corner) is at 2 High Street.


Look out for activities in the shop during the week including free bedtime readings at 9.30pm.
