3.01.19. Dalmellington Book Town - on the road to nowhere. Flip M Writes: This is fascinating - I drove past Dalmellington recently and saw a street sign pointing towards the town centre and "Bookshops" and thought "I didn't know there were any bookshops there"! We just moved to a village nearby and briefly got my hopes up - I googled "Dalmellington bookshops" and your page came up! Clearly, 1 sign at least evaded the cull in 2005!  Add a comment
