Penpont poet Hugh McMillan is travelling from the Mull of Galloway to Dalry, from Dumfries to Wanlockhead, from Gretna to Moffat, in an attempt to capture the spirit of Dumfries and Galloway today. He has been commissioned by the Wigtown Book Festival to write a sequel to the funny and notorious 'Gallovidian Encyclopaedia' written by John McTaggart in 1824, a hilarious and partly slanderous work which was withdrawn from publication as a result of the furore it caused at the time.

 

E-mail him if you have a tale or two to share at: steamboatsmcmillan@hotmail.com
