Remote lighthouse at the most southern tip of Scotland. Windy roads along some fantastic coastline. Well signposted. Free parking. Surprisingly good cafe and shop, reasonably priced, and great views. Visited the museum-informative.

Have been to the Mull of Galloway many times - in all weathers and it never fails to work its magic . There are almost 360 degrees of superb sea views from the lighthouse and from the coffee house/visitor centre at Gallie Craig - Scotland`s most southerly point! The approach to the Mull of Galloway itself is so narrow that... More

Fabulous views from the lamp house and with Cumbria, the Isle of Man, and Ireland in clear sight it really gives you a sense of being on a load of islands. Very helpful and knowledgeable guide too.

Went to the Mull of Galloway Lighthouse last Saturday. It was a beautiful sunny day, and the lighthouse looked stunning in the sunshine. We bought our tickets and climbed the 115 steps to the top of the lighthouse. The views were fantastic. The guide who gave a short talk was very passionate about the lighthouse and the surrounding area. The... More

We visited this light house in August for the Mull of Galloway festival. The weather turned very nasty on the Sunday - it rained all day - but we still had a wonderful time at the cafe there eating good food and listening to a local folk band called Life of Riley. We had visited the lighthouse the previous day.... More

Completely unique! With lots and lots of history, old lighthouse equipment that has now been superseded by modern electronics. Lots of kids activities too! The attendants were astonishing; they seemed to know lots of things about almost every other lighthouse around the British Isles. This is a really worthwhile place to enjoy history with stunning views and scenery. You'll keep... More

When I heard that the lighthouse had been opened to the public I added on my list of "to do's" when on holiday there.. So glad I did.. Managed to climb the 115 steps and got a fabulous view towards both Ireland and Isle of Man. Well worth a visit. Unlike many tourist attractions it was so cheap too.

Although it was extremely windy and very wet we enjoyed our visit. The steps up the lighthouse are worth the effort as even on a day when the weather was not ideal the view was to die for.

Scotland's most southerly point holds a great journey down to it and this little gem of history is a great reward at the end. We stopped off en route to the beach and flew a kite eating ice cream :) Visiting with 14 and 11 yr girls and a 6 yr old boy, we took a picnic but decided to... More
