We are planning a trip to Wales and Scotland in September and October 2022. We have Wigtown on our wish list for genealogy research; originally we had planned to visit coming from Wales but because of timing, it look as though we'd run into their book festival. So we're reconsidering our itinerary, perhaps heading straight to Glasgow or Edinburgh first, then looping back after the festival. That leads me to asking:
Has anyone visited Wigtown during the book festival? If so, is it jam-packed so much so that we would find it difficult to secure lodging, see folks about past family, etc. The festival sounds appealing but we will have already been to another festival in Wales and we're thinking that this might be overload.
In general, if you've visited Wigtown, are there "can't miss" items we should put on our list? It looks to be a lovely area. I should mention we will be using trains and buses for transportation.
As always, thanks for any advice or comments from this great group!
