Whithorn and District Community Council

Whithorn and District Community Council recognises the proud heritage of Whithorn, as the site of the earliest Christian community in Scotland, which still shapes the town’s architecture and economy. The town aspires to promote cultural and sustainable tourism and as such the Community Council partners with other groups in promoting events which celebrate heritage, initiatives which allow us better to look after our town and its environs, and learning which allows a new generation to understand the importance of the town. It particularly supports new regeneration initiatives which have long distance walking routes at their core; these trace the ancient pilgrimage paths which crossed Scotland to Whithorn for over 1000 years.
