Isle of Whithorn

Anyone got experience of Isle of Whithorn?

I've been invited to a wedding about 10 mins from there in August and it's 4 hours to Heysham by ferry and 3 hours by road from here, but 40 miles by rib!

Does it dry out or is there a pontoon or similar where I could moor overnight.

Any information welcome

There is a small harbour 6 miles from there called Garlieston (Wigtown Bay side) that i have seen small boats tied up in. Never used it so cannot say more, but was there not a trawler lost from Whithorn about three years ago. That would suggest some sort of facility is at the Isle itself. Check tourist information, they might help.
In fact check this out:

No pontoon, only mooring alongside the quay which dries.

I don't think it is suitable to moor off in deeper water.

Probably a silly question but have you looked at ? There are three possible sites. Des
