This delightful museum is situated in the grounds of Whithorn Priory, the site of the first Christian church in Scotland, founded by St Ninian in the 5th century. The museum showcases the history of the priory, but the main reason to visit is to see the wonderful collection of over 60 early Christian crosses, among them the Latinus Stone, the earliest Christian memorial in Scotland, dated to AD 450.
