**COVID19 UPDATE: The Open Book has reopened with all the required PPE in place, but is only open when guests are comfortable doing so. At the present time, guests may choose not to open the shop, but simply to come and enjoy a visit to Wigtown.**

Nestled into the pristine lowlands, The Open Book is a charming bookshop with apartment above in the heart of Wigtown, Scotland's National Book Town. Live your dream of having your very own bookshop by the sea in Scotland...for a week or two.

Le logement
The first ever bookshop holiday / residency experience, Scotland's National Book Town welcomes you to play-bookshop for a week or two. We'll give you your very own apartment and bookshop below, supported by a team of friendly volunteers to make your trip as lovely as possible. Set up by The Wigtown Festival Company, The Open Book's aim is to celebrate books, independent bookshops and welcome people around the world to Scotland's National Book Town. The fee for your stay is low because we are a non-profit. It covers the running costs of the holiday but that is all. A laptop and WiFi are provided.

Accès des voyageurs
Scotland's National Book Town is in the most beautiful part of Scotland: Galloway. The setting for many literary classics, like The 39 Steps, beauty, history and adventure await you! Sea, ancient woodlands, crumbling castles, a whisky distillery, 7 Stanes Cycle Trails, nature preserves, farms, the Southern Upland Way, Scotland's Art Town, Food Town and the home of Burns are just on your doorstep...public transport and bicycles will get you so far, but a car is strongly recommended.

Autres remarques
We encourage you to read up on Wigtown, Galloway and prepare for your visit, for there's lots to see here. Though there are buses, and bicycles, a car is strongly recommended and can be rented near Carlisle if you're coming by train, or Prestwick or Glasgow Airport. We offer you the bookshop, apartment and orientation.

Residents of the Open Book now have the opportunity to have a photo-shoot during their stay with professional photographer Kim Ayres. Kim has an extensive portfolio of photography projects in the area and has all the skills to make your vision come to life. Please note, that this project is additional to the Open Book Experience and is priced separately, starting at £300. For more information, please enquire at time of booking.

All the rest for your bookshop holiday is up to you. Please note that this is not a volunteer opportunity, nor are we paying you to work. This is a holiday that you are paying for, classified under cultural tourism and you can enjoy the bookshop as you wish. It is the sole responsibility of the resident to ensure that they adhere to any visa requirements or similar regulations.
