St Ninian's Cave from Kisdale, near Whithorn

Take a short hike down to the coastline to visit St Ninian's Cave - a place of retreat and prayer for Scotland's first saint, who set up his church in Whithorn in 397 AD.


Straightforward though slightly muddy path down to the shore, then pebbly shoreline to reach the cave. The cave may be inaccessible at very high tide.
