Reasons to visit

The Whithorn Way is a newly mapped 143 mile walking and cycling route starting from Glasgow and following a westerly route to Whithorn, travelled by pilgrims for well over 1,000 years. At its peak, the shrine attracted pilgrims from Scotland, England and beyond, who traced a network of sea and land routes to Whithorn. Now you can walk (or cycle) one of these ancient routes ‘The Whithorn Way’ for yourself (or simply enjoy one of the local segments).
