Creetown is a small town with a seaport on the coast of Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. Creetown began as a small fishing village in the 18th century. Pilgrims to the shrine of St Ninian used the port at Creetown to catch the ferry to Whithorn, where the shrine is located. The harbour area has some 18th and 19th century houses around it and in those days the port was a busy one, as it was used to transport the granite which was quarried in the area. It has a Gem museum, but perhaps its main claim to fame is that it was one of the locations for the filming of The Wicker Man in 1973.
Whithorn was inhabited in the 5th century an archaeological finds suggest that it was an important centre of Christianity at that time. The inhabitants were importing luxury goods from the Mediterranean region, and collaboratively working to farm the land and produce crops. Not much is known about the life of St Ninian, but certainly by the 7th century people were travelling to Whithorn to seek a miracle cure from St Ninian. It is said that he once cured a chieftain’s blindness, which then helped him to convert many people in Britain to Christianity. His feast day is celebrated on 16th September.

Granite has a high silica content meaning that anyone working with it should take safety precautions, and be given the appropriate protective clothing and equipment to work safely with it. Respirable crystalline silica (RCS) particles can be inhaled and these will cause scarring of the lung tissue and a hardening of it over time.
