Day 4 – Salway Coast
It’s beach day! Our go-to spot is Sandyhill beach. Pop it into satnav and head straight down for a day on gorgeous sands that stretch out for miles when the tide is out.
Sandyhills to Whithorn
Heading south on the A714, you come across Scotland’s Book Town- Wigtown- renowned for their book shops and cafes galore. Then you can either stroll across the shores of Wigtown Bay, or take a small detour to another beautiful coastal village which is famed for the Mulberry Harbours, which aided in bringing an end to WW2. I then recommend heading southwards to the Isle of Whithorn, where you can enjoy lunch by the pretty harbour. Head to the nearby Whithorn to learn about the earliest Christian community in Scotland. Start by visiting the Whithorn Visitor Centre and Museum, to learn about the sights to come. Walk a few metres to the Whithorn Priory, a tranquil area with free guides to help you learn about the ancient history of Whithorn. Then drive to the shore to visit St. Ninian’s Cave, where you can take the small trek into the cave. Be warned, it is very wet and slippery! Follow this, by watching the sunset over the pebbled beach - what an end to a day!
