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.

If you happen to be down in Portpatrick or nearby, put this place on your list of things to see. The views from the lighthouse and surrounding grounds are amazing. This was my third visit and i never tire of going here. On a clear day you can see The Isle of Man and North Wales to the South, England... More

This isn't a review of the lighthouse, just the surroundings and the cafe! Well worth the visit just to take in the atmosphere - and have a nice coffee and cake in the beautifully (and sympathetically) situated cafe. The weather was kind so we had great views all around, and sightings of lots of seabirds. Long drive along single track... More

visited the lighthouse in June on a VERY windy day, which made it all the better :-). Poor views due to weather, but still enjoyed it. Museum is very good if you take your time and play the videos. Large modern cafe, gift shop to shelter from the weather.

We have climbed the lighthouse twice. 1st time was good friday, the day it opened for the season, and in thick fog!! So no view whatever. Second time was on the late may bank holiday. Slightly hazy day so no view of the iom or ireland. Well worth the climb. Friendly knowledgeable staff.

Awesome place but wrap up warm as theres little between you and north america! We went in late spring in the hope of seeing the nesting sea birds. Alas the weather was typically scottish with visibilty down to the end of your nose. Decamped to the coffee shop for a warm and a reasonably priced cup of coffee.

Took the trip down to the Mull of Galloway - Scotland's most southerly point - and found not just a lighthouse and exhibition centre but a rather decent cafe and gift shop. Great views from both especially the cafe looking right across to Ireland and down to the Isle of Man. Even free high power binoculars to hand in the... More
