Artist's Description

St. Ninian’s Chapel behind the harbour frontage street in the Isle of Whithorn now stands as a restored 14th century reception chapel although excavation revealed traces of an earlier, 12th century chapel. It was used by sea-borne pilgrims visiting the shrine of St. Ninian.

According to an unbroken tradition dating from the earliest times and confirmed in the writings of the Venerable Bede in the 8th century, a holy man named Nynia, born among the British people, introduced the Christian faith into a significant part of the land now known as Scotland long before the coming of Saint Columba.
