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. We also have three former Lighthouse Keepers' holiday cottages available for holidays or short breaks throughout the year.

We hadn't been to the mull of Galloway for years so it was lovely to revisit it again. So much has improved and we greatly enjoyed meeting the lovely staff at the rspb centre, looking at the lighthouse buildings and then having lunch . Great for couples like us but we saw lots of children having fun watching the wildlife... More

Very lucky to visit here on a sunny day in the Easter Holidays. The staff were friendly, welcoming and very jolly! It wasn't expensive and we could have visited the exhibition too, but we were all a little tired and didn't want to take the dogs inside. Despite being terrified of heights I managed to sit down at the top... More

I made a decision to visit on the spur of the moment - weather was glorious. It was a long drive but worth the effort. Well signed and the walks once I arrived with my dog gave me spectacular views.

We didn't actually go into the attraction or go up the lighthouse but you do get some stunning views of Ireland and The Isle Of Man just by wandering around the coastal paths. The drive down is very narrow but has passing places.

Visited MoG Lighthouse with my wife, son (nearly 4) and dog and it was well worth the long drive down from Glenluce. Climbed to the top with my son and the entrance fee was ok - didn't feel ripped off. Staff were all very friendly.

Just back from a wonderful drive down to see the lighthouse. The drive was quite long but the Mull of Galloway attractions are clearly signposted so it's easy to find. We didn't go into the lighthouse but spent a good couple of hours there admiring the spectacular views and walking along the coastline. There is an organised RSPB walk which... More

We visited on Easter Saturday which meant a host of Easter themed activity going on which seemed well organised an well received by the 'family audience'. We enjoyed a walk around the cliff paths and a clambe up 'Kennedy's Cairn' before having a chat with staff in the RSPB building then going up to the top of the lighthouse to... More

We visited the Mull of Galloway 19/02/15 the views are superb, I'm a keen photographer and what struck me about this place is the quality of the light. We stayed for about an hour and experienced all sorts of weather, I'd like to have visited the lighthouse but I got so wrapped up in taking taking photos I never gave... More

fantastic place to visit with lots to do and see. Amazing views across the sea to the Isle of Man and Ireland. The RSPB visitors center is definitely worth a visit as is the lighthouse exhibition. if feeling a bit energetic then maybe take a trip down to the Foghorn.
