St Ninian's Chapel - Isle of Whithorn

St Ninian's Chapel, Isle of Whithorn, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland

These are photographs of St Ninian's original stone chapel.

St Ninian was the guy who brought Christianity to Scotland, about 100 years before Columba was even born. St Ninian died in 432 AD and Columba wasn't born until 521 AD.

Quite why anyone thinks Columba brought Christianity to Scotland remains a total mystery.

From ground level the village is hidden from the chapel and vice-versa.

The only way to show them both together is from the air. From these photos you can easily see the contours of the ground which hide the chapel from view from the north.
