About the location

Isle Of Whithorn

Newton Stewart 20 miles.

The picturesque village of the Isle of Whithorn, though no longer an island, nestles around its natural harbour on the southernmost tip of the Machars Peninsula, designated as an outstanding conservation area. The village has a long history of seafaring and trade, which dates back to the Vikings. The arrival in 397 of Ninian, Scotland's first missionary and saint, is thought to be the beginning of Scotland's Christian history, and the remains of the 13th century chapel can still be seen at the end of the harbour. A short climb will take you to the distinctive white tower - the Cairn - which has been a mariner's landmark for close on two centuries. Today the harbour is popular with visiting leisure sailors and with local boats fishing for crabs and lobsters. The area is steeped in history with numerous sites ranging from Mesolithic and Iron Age forts, standing stones and 'cup and ring’ markings, an 11th century chapel and castles from the era of Robert the Bruce. Wigtown, Scotland's first book town, can be reached within a short drive, and has over a dozen book shops in which one can easily lose an hour or two! With beaches, forests, golf courses, gardens and churches to visit, this is an ideal base for discovering this corner of Scotland.

It was peaceful and private, yet there were people around who were happy to chat should we wish to. Overall it was a lovely holiday that helped us relax, and recharge our batteries for the coming winter. I wish I was still there, could have managed a fortnight. The cottage was very comfortable and warm.

Exactly as described in brochure. Lovely spot for a quiet restful break.

Mr Pinchen, Hartlepool, August 2013

It was nice, clean and there was no problems, and the location was very good.

Mr Matthews, Manchester, June 2013

The location of the property was fantastic, great views and plenty of walks close by. The cottage was very clean, with everything you needed; like home-from-home.
