The Whithorn Trust 45-47 George St, Whithorn, Newton Stewart DG8 8NS, UK

Whithorn is a great place to spend a day learning all about the priory and the pilgrims who travelled here to honour St Ninian.

Start your tour of the town at the Whithorn Story Visitor Centre. Enjoy the displays of artefacts and a simulated archaeological dig which tell the story of the town, church and pilgrimage centre at Whithorn, the home of Ninian, the 5th century missionary and Scotland's first saint.

Head further along Bruce Street to the Whithorn Priory Museum to see a collection of stones, including the famous Latinus Stone, which date back to 450 AD. The collection tells the astonishing story from the arrival of Christianity to the Reformation. Next, see the ruins of Whithorn Priory and the crypts, which are thought to have once held the rock-cut tomb of St Ninian.
