We have commented on the wonderful Historic Scotland museum at Whithorn. The old Ministry sign is displayed in addition to the new HES information board.

Above the door is an inscription in both Latin and English dating to 1730 recording the benefaction of both the parish and town (donis parochiae et urbis structa).

  1. Whithorn – when I worked on creating the new museum I came across the original drawings for the early 1900 signage from when the Old Schoolhouse was first converted into a museum for the early Christian stones by the Ministry of Works. I have a scan.
