Old Photograph Rosie's Brae Isle Of Whithorn Scotland

Old photograph of Rosie's Brae road in Isle of Whithorn in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. The word Brae in Scots, means a steep bank or hillside. The harbour remains the main focal point of the village. The Isle's own fleet is engaged in light trawling and lobster fishing. A number of leisure craft are kept here and the Isle is increasingly being used as a stopping off location for pleasure traffic plying the west coast, and as a launching site for trailer based craft such as small angling boats and diving RIB's.Various scenes from the 1973 film The Wicker Man were filmed in and around the Isle of Whithorn.
