The Isle of Whithorn

About the Isle Archive Group

The Isle's Archive Group began gathering together historic recollections and material from many sources - one important objective is to ensure that those who remember what happened twenty, thirty or more years ago have the opportunity to put their memories on record.

Captain Jack Niblock with John ScoularThe Isle of Whithorn's Maritime History is unique - and this feature, The Isle and The Sea is based on a talk given by Capt Jack Niblock and John Scoular at the October 2002 Isle Hamefairin'. In it you will find many fascinating aspects of this community and its relationship with the sea.

The sections (listed opposite), were in the process of compilation by the late Dennis Fisher. It is hoped to continue the work soon.

For the present, the site features three aspects of Isle life: The Isle and the Sea, Agriculture and Village Life.
