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, gentle 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, lobsters and scallops. 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.
