St Ninian Journey

To the Source

Whithorn in Galloway is the cradle of Scottish Christianity. It is also a place of mystery and austere beauty. Rich in early Christian carvings, once a wealthy centre of royal pilgrimage, Whithorn retains a rare otherness. Travel cross-country through Scotland’s borderlands or by Glasgow and Ayrshire, connecting the abbeys and castles of Scotland’s kings.
