About the Image
St Ninian's Chapel at sunset in December. The roofless 12th-century chapel is located on the hillside overlooking Isle of Whithorn harbour. The simple rectangular building measures about 31ft x 16ft 6in internally and was built around the year 1300 on the site of an earlier 12th-century building which was restored by the Marquess of Bute in 1898.
Internally the chapel is divided into two sections; a nave roughly 17ft square, and a much smaller square chancel. It stands within a semi-circular enclosure, a rough oval about 110ft long that may belong to an earlier Celtic period of use, perhaps as a burial ground.
The Isle of Whithorn in Dumfries and Galloway is one of the most southerly villages and seaports in Scotland and located near the southern tip of The Machars.
