Our last day Scotland before heading back into England and towards home is around round Dumfries and Galloway.

The ruins of St Ninian’s Chapel stand on the seaward side of Isle of Whithorn  on what was originally a genuine island before the gap between it and the mainland was filled during the development of the village and harbour.

A little further on is a stone memorial with steel anchor. It remembers The Sollway Harvester and her crew a Scallop dredger from Kirkcubright. She sank off the Isle of Many in a heavy storm on 11th January 2000 with the loss of 7 souls – her entire crew.
