About the neighbourhood
Isle Of Whithorn
Isle of Whithorn is one of the most southerly villages and seaports in Scotland, lying on the coast north east of Burrow Head, about three miles from Whithorn in Dumfries and Galloway.

The village is the location of the long ruined 13th century Saint Ninian's Chapel, previously a chapel linked to Whithorn Priory

and a stopping off point for pilgrims landing on Isle Head and making their way to Whithorn. No longer a true island, John Ainslie's maps as late as 1782 and 1821 show the Isle as an island.

The main street was originally a causeway, with the harbour located on what was then the true Isle.

For years visitors have come to the Isle to behold the picture postcard view that has made a fortune for film manufacturers
