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 Exhibition of Lighthouse History, RSPB reserve and visitor centre and Gallie Craig coffee house. Visit our website for seasonal opening times and to plan your visit. We have regular Engine and Foghorn demonstrations, check our website for details. Group bookings are welcome by arrangement. Our vintage Engines and Foghorn are now fully refurbished and are running again after 30 years. Our three former Lighthouse Keepers Cottages are available for holidays throughout the year. Pets are welcome. The cottages can be booked individually or as a group - we can accommodate up to 16 guests plus infants. The Mull of Galloway is an authorised location for weddings, see our website.

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.
