01988 Area Code - Wigtown

The 01988 area code is used for Wigtown (Council of Dumfries and Galloway) and the areas directly surrounding Wigtown, which includes 8 distinct locations. Most 01988 numbers are used for landlines. However, they can also be purchased by companies or organizations to be used for services that don’t have any connection to the Wigtown area.

Previously, the area used 0988 as their area code. This changed in April 1995 during the phONEday event, where it was changed to the 01988 area code to accommodate the growing population and supplement the shrinking supply of phone numbers in Dumfries and Galloway.
