The Isle of Whithorn
If you've plenty of time, (about 4-5 hours) then a coastal path from Burrowhead (accessed via the Holiday Village) can be used to get to St Ninian's Cave. This gives splendid views of the Isle of Man, as well as sea-bird life. You should always bear in mind that weather can, and does change, and that clifftop routes in particular demand care. Children and dogs should be kept under control.
It's also possible to walk along a cliff path, leaving the Laigh Isle chalets on the north side of the village, towards Stein Head.
A useful little guide booklet Walking in and Around the Machars is obtainable locally at Tourist Information points.
More information on the facilities and services - public transport, etc. can be obtained at www.visitdumfriesandgalloway.co.uk
