Whithorn Story

Run by the Whithorn Trust, the Whithorn Story is an excellent museum telling the story of the area. The visitor centre features displays of artefacts, replica costumes to try on, a simulated archaeological dig and an audio-visual presentation on the area's heritage.


Uncovering the earliest Christian monument in Scotland has contributed to our understanding of earlier times.
