This is one of a few places in the area that has this feature.

The Drill Hall in Whithorn, in the Machars Region of Galloway, is a former Cameronian church turned WWII 'Dad's Army' drill hall turned community storeroom. In the mid 2000s it was lovingly transformed into the stunning home that we are now delighted to share with Airbnb guests. Whithorn is near the site of St Ninian's arrival, reputed to be the first to bring Christianity to Scotland. The light on hills and sea is remarkable, the people friendly, and historical/archaeological sites abound.
