Location description from owner

The Scotland region

The village of the Isle of Whithorn lies on the most southerly tip of the Machars between Luce and Wigtown Bay. It is most famous for the ruined 13th Century St Ninians Chapel which stands on the rocky foreshore and which was the first port of call for thousands of pilgrims arriving on the way to Whithorn on their great pilgrimage in those early years. There are many historical finds in the area and in Whithorn itself has a Visitors Centre with an Archeological dig and small film theatre and museum.
The town of Wigtown is 15 minutes drive from the house and is famous for its Book Festival every year and its large amount of bookshops for browsing all year round.

Whithorn

The Isle of Whithorn is a small picturesque harbour town with fabulous views all around. The village offers spectacular walks within 3 minutes of the house. There is a small post office which also sells a small selection of food items including bread, milk and newspapers. A fish van visits the Isle once a week at tea time and blows its horn to announce itself! Fresh fish is also available at the small shop on the Quai.

Whithorn itself, a 5 minute drive away, also has a wider range of food provision shops and other outlets such as cafes, gift shops and a chemist. As does Wigtown which is well worth a visit.

“A little gem of a place.”

Reviewed 21 Jun 2016

Prior to arriving we had been sent information about the cottage and the surrounding area so we didn't have to waste any of our holiday 'finding our feet' - we found this very useful. The cottage itself was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The area really is beautiful and we enjoyed many walks up and down the coast - it's a walker's paradise! The pub served very good food and the community run coffee shop/ cafe did a fab breakfast and delicious home made cakes. We found the locals particularly friendly. A car is essential, as was pointed out by the owners, as facilities on the isle are limited. There was only one slight negative and that was that the house opposite was undergoing extensive building work so there was daily noise from machinery. But, the work looked close to completion so I'm sure tranquillity will be resumed in the very near future. This was our first visit to this cottage and to the Isle, I hope it won't be our last. Would recommend it to anyone who enjoys walking and enjoys the sea - views are stunning. Thank-you for a lovely week.
