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.

We visited on a stormy Sunday morning in September, the staff were very welcoming and informative, a highlight to our tour of Scotland.

Spectacular views from the hills around the lighthouse. Unfortunately can't climb the lighthouse on a weekday. Still worth the visit. Have a coffee at nearby cafe.

We visited on a weekday so were unable to climb up to the top of the lighthouse. Accordingly, we spent some time looking round the ground level exhibition and to our surprise found it fascinating. It wasn't so much the explanation of how the compressed...More

The long narrow road that takes you there makes it all the more interesting as it takes you through fields with the sea on both sides. It was great to see such a wonderful place that was so unspoilt. A RSPB building, a very good...More
