St NINIAN’S CHAPEL

St NINIAN’S CHAPEL

St Ninian, Scotland’s first Christian missionary, landed in 397AD on the Isle of Whithorn, at the south-east corner of the Machars Peninsula. A chapel was established for pilgrims nearby. Its ruined shell is 14th century, though there is evidence of an older building underneath – probably an earlier chapel.
