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 With lots and lots of history, old lighthouse equipment that has now been superseded by modern electronics.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

We spent the middle part of the day on the Mull of Galloway, which is the southernmost point of Scotland. The day was sunny and clear, so we had excellent views of the birds on the nearby cliffs, and of the Isle of Man and Ireland. The top of the lighthouse was reached after climbing 115 steps. It was very... More

Well worth a visit especially on a nice sunny day....you can see for miles.A lot of stairs to climb to the top but well worth the effort.Then retreat to the restaurant for a well earned coffee and great variety of "goodies".

From this lighthouse, the most southerly point in Scotland,you can see Wales, Ireland and the Isle of Man. It wasn't an overly clear day but the views are still spectacular. Unfortunately the lighthouse itself wasn't opened but the small museum was very interesting.enjoyed the drive into the lighthouse.

The lighthouse was too far from the car park to walk. It was windy there. From the hill you could see quite a bit of Ireland, not clearly. There were some very jagged rocks below the cliff. I walked along a footpath for 200 yards or so, and had to walk back because I couldn't get over or through an... More
