About Isle of Whithorn

Isle of Whithorn is one of the most southerly villages and seaports in Scotland. It is located on north east of Burrow Head, about three miles from the separate village of Whithorn, with which it is often mixed up or amalgamated with. It is referred to locally as just 'The Isle'.

The village has a long history of Christianity, with the 13th-century Saint Ninian's Chapel located here, once a stopping point for pilgrims landing on Isle Head. It is believed that that up until the 16th-17th centuries, the Isle was an actual an island, with the main street originally a causeway.

Today there is a small selection of accommodations and places to eat.
