Owing to its success over the last five years, the Boswell Book Festival moved the main event to Dumfries House in 2015, and will continue there this year. This is a big event in East Ayrshire, bringing many day visitors but also guests stay overnight. Check out the local B&Bs – The Old School Dalleagles – a converted school with huge rooms furnished to a very high standard or Laigh Tarbeg, a delightful farmhouse on a working farm. Or of course the 23 bedroom Dumfries House Lodge on the estate. But book early….
