Tithe Barn, Whitekirk
Tithe Barn, Whitekirk
After miracles of healing were being performed at a nearby well in the 13th century, the nearby church of St Mary's was placed under the protection of James I who built hostels for the growing number of pilgrims. King James IV regularly made the journey to Whitekirk, but his son King James V gave the site to the Sinclair family who in around 1540 built a rare example in Scotland of a 3-storey tithe barn with stone from the former pilgrims' hostel. In the 19th century the holy well dried up following agricultural drainage.
