A real fairy tale celebrity, The Big Bad Wolf, is on the prowl around Dumfries. Have You Seen This Wolf is an immersive trail around Dumfries town centre as part of the Storybook Dumfries project, that links into the literary history that the town is steeped in. There are storybook characters hiding from the wolf all over Dumfries, reimagined in shadow art. Keen-eyed visitors will notice links to Peter Pan and Robert Burns threaded throughout the trail. To visit do the trail, start at Dumfries Station and head around the route pictured above, finishing at Moat Brae. There are leaflets detailing the route available across Dumfries.
