Well worth the trip up to the top of the lighthouse. Views are amazing, as you would expect, but the added extra was the very knowledgeable and helpful staff both at the bottom and the top.

We visit the Mull most years while holidaying in the area. Have never actually been in the lighthouse itself, but there are lots of short walks around the area with some stunning scenery & lots of wildlife & birdspotting opportunities. The RSPB cottage has cameras with live feeds to the nesting birds & lots of information on what might be... More

Had a truly wonderful time staying at Puffins superbly appointed peaceful, quite cottage with cosy fire, bath, great kitchen and relaxing living area. Free wifi and a temperature setting that ensured we always came back to a snug home away from home after a days walking/hiking/driving was everything we could have asked for. Run by a local community group who... More

We visited here on a glorious day and weren't let down. Amazing being able to go into a lighthouse as there are so few left which you can do this in. The lady at the exhibition was lovely and friendly and the exhibition although small was very interesting and informative. We climbed the lighthouse and went in with a 4... More

We visited this Mull of Galloway and its lighthouse "on spec" after dropping family at the Cairnryan ferry terminal. Once past Stranraer, it's a pleasant, if slow, drive through open countryside to the cliff-top car-park at the road-end. We were pleasantly surprised to find, besides the lighthouse, an excellent cafe and a nearby cottage housing an RSPB information point which... More

On a good day the views must be spectacular with views that would stretch for miles. Hope you have a head for heights.

The lighthouse stands proud and the Mull positively shines in all it's glory, a truly beautiful place to visit and not to be missed. The exhibition staff prove very helpful but it wasn't very nice to hear one particular staff member gossiping about a customer who'd visited previously, professionality was not her strongest point and sadly let the team down!

An evening's drive down the Mull, very atmospheric. The site is marvellously evocative of the isolation of the lives of lighthouse keepers' and their families, a lovely cliff top walk, plenty of cattle

We thought it would be nice to visit the most southern tip of Scotland & we were right! Eventually after miles of single track road & cattle grids we came upon the lighthouse standing their in all it's glory! It was a very wet day we went & the view wasn't great but the sun did come out briefly &... More
