About Whithorn Priory and Museum

There is no visitor access to Whithorn Priory itself due to access restrictions in place as a precautionary measure while we undertake high level masonry inspections.

As one of Scotland’s earliest Christian sites, it brought travellers, traders, pilgrims and royalty to Whithorn for more than 1,000 years.

The priory built here in the 1100s for Premonstratensian monks later became the cathedral church of Galloway. Little of the priory survives today, but you can still follow the route taken by medieval pilgrims to visit St Ninian’s shrine at the east end of the church.
