Yes this is just a recommendation


The priory built here in the 1100s for Premonstratensian monks later became the cathedral church of Galloway. Little of the priory survives today, but you can still follow the route taken by medieval pilgrims to visit St Ninian’s shrine at the east end of the church.

Visitors’ dogs are allowed at Whithorn Priory, but are not permitted in roofed areas. Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times and not left unattended at any time.
