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.
