Whithorn Trust

The Royal Burgh of Whithorn has an important history which is immediately obvious from the medieval street layout. Even more significant is the hidden evidence of the early origins of a settlement on this site going back to the 5th century, Scotland’s first Christian community. Enter the Whithorn Story Visitor Centre on the main street to discover archaeological evidence from the past.


The Swallow Theatre

The Swallow Theatre is a restored and converted byre at Moss Park, Ravenstone, about three miles from Whithorn. Seating just forty-eight people, it is one of the smallest theatres in the country. It began in 1996 and over the years the programme has grown to more than twenty events per year. The Swallow Theatre aims to provide a wide range of events: drama (including productions by local actors and visiting professional groups), music (classical, folk and jazz), poetry and play readings, and ‘theme nights’.
