Overview

The Mull of Galloway is Scotland's most southerly point and is one of its least known areas, remaining 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 also have three former Lighthouse Keepers' holiday cottages available for holidays or short breaks throughout the year. Dumfries and Galloway has recently been voted Holiday Destination of the Year by BBC Countryfile Magazine.

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

Stunning views, nice little walk around the lighthouse and a fantastic cafe beside it. We also saw 3 hares as we left.

It's a fair trek to get there but it is well worth it. The place is remote but the views in every direction are amazing and the birdlife is fascinating. Decent-sized car park. I would imagine it might be a little tricky to see the...More

If the weather is decent as it was today this is well worth a visit. Spectacular views with a very pleasant walk. Can visit the Lighthouse and appreciate the natural beauty of the area.

Great views especially from the fog horn. The small museum explains the history of lighthouses and is well worth a visit.
