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.

We enjoyed our stay in the Principal Lighthouse Keepers cottage in April: comfortable, peaceful, and very atmospheric especially at night. The staff were friendly and most helpful. Be prepared to be greeted with howling winds that do sweep across the exposed headland! The panoramic views are most spectacular, and when you reach the top of the lighthouse lantern room, they...

It is well worth the drive along the lanes to get here, It was a bleak and windy day but that just added to the atmosphere of the place, After visiting the nice little museum ( just the right size for me with lots of lighthouse memorabilia and things to touch ) and climbing up to the top of the...

There is an intersting museum to look round and for a small additional fee, you can climb the 110 steps to the top. There are 2 steep ladders, so it is not for those of more limited mobility. We went on a windy day and you could barely stand upright at the top!

We visited the lighthouse at the weekend and it was fabulous. The volunteers are very informative and helpful. It was a gorgeous day and so we could see for miles at the top of the lighthouse. The views were breathtaking and you kind of forgot you were in Scotland! The entrance to the lighthouse was very reasonably priced also. It... More

Lighthouse closed when we visited. Interesting but not "stunning" views. Also a bit hazy when we visited so could not see Lake District. Did this trip really to tick off most southely tip of Scotland But plenty of wild life - perigrine falcon, gannets, eider ducks, seals. So take binoculars

Set in a fabulous setting, (even on the day we visited when the weather was nasty). Very remote single track drive which is in itself worth the effort, however it must be sa i d that on the day we visited as we got to the wall next to the lighthouse we were greeted by some 'indeterminately intellectually challenged' person...

Hello Tommee2, Thank you for your review of the Mull of Galloway Lighthouse and Exhibition. The day you visited sounds like it was the day when we had BBC4 visiting us filming for a TV programme about Quantum Physics and Quantum Biology. They were filming inside the Lighthouse and outside on the reserve too. The Lighthouse is open to visitors... More

Fresh air, spectacular views, lots of cows and a great hot chocolate. It can get a little windy and there are quite a few tricky paths for the less able bodied but a lovely experience.
