Overview

The Mull of Galloway is Scotland's most southerly point and an unspoiled paradise for visitors seeking peace and tranquility. We hope you will enjoy your visit and discover for yourself the beautiful countryside, beaches, splendid views and warm climate. Climb Scotland's most southerly Lighthouse, visit our Lighthouse Exhibition, RSPB reserve and Gallie Craig coffee house. Visit our website for seasonal opening times and to plan your visit. We have regular engine demonstrations and group bookings are welcome. Our vintage engines are now being refurbished and are running again after 30 years. The engines used to generate the air for the fog horn. We have three former Lighthouse Keepers' cottages available for holidays throughout the year. Short breaks are available in low season. Pets are welcome. The cottages can be booked individually or as a group - we can accommodate 16 guests plus infants. The Mull of Galloway is now a certified location for weddings.

Place is very well looked after, staff very friendly, even when closed there is plenty of access. The views are stunning and worth the journey down single track roads. Brilliant for unusual photographs.

The Mull of Galloway Lighthouse is just a lovely place to visit. It was blowing a gale when we were there so we didn't go up to the lighthouse but the surrounding area was just lovely. We spent a couple of hours in and around...More

A lovely lighthouse. We visited when it had closed the day before but the walk around the lighthouse and scenery were well worth the visit. The RSPB have a centre on the site and it was good to see what bird life had been inhabiting...More

You can climb up to the top of the lighthouse, and go out onto the observation deck (if you don't mind hights). An interesting visit and good views on a clear day. There is an history exhibition at ground level, and a coffee shop next...More
