Whithorn Way

1-2 week, Scotland

The Whithorn Way – 143 miles – 2 weeks – Glasgow to Whithorn. Take up the pilgrim’s staff for a fortnight, and discover the many holy places along Firth of Clyde; the west coast of Scotland’s Central Belt. Abbeys, holy well, and churches line the route, that takes you from the beating heart of Scotland’s cultural centre of Glasgow, into Dumfries and Galloway – to Whithorn, the site of the the first recorded church in Scotland, founded by Saint Ninian in the mid fifth century.

The Whithorn Way corresponds to the section of St Ninian’s Way between Whithorn to Glasgow (but in reverse).
