What better way to celebrate Galloway writer S.R.Crockett’s 160th anniversary than exploring Crockett country? #GoCrocketteering offers you the opportunity to do just that. 160 slates with quotes from Crockett’s writing have been laid in significant places across Galloway. From Hestan (Rathan) Island off the Solway Coast to Wigtown in the west, in the towns and villages, by the wayside and deep into the Galloway hills, if you look closely you may see one.
The map below shows the sites of slates (some more accurate than others!) as of September 2019 and is updated as more slates are placed out in the landscape. When laid, there are picture clues available.
The 160 slates are split into area charts: SOLWAY, GLENKENS, HILLS and WEST.
Armed with the charts for each area you can create your own personal literary tourism trail.
