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.

Good value entry to museum & visit up the lighthouse. Fantastic views on a fine day. Helpful staff. Great walks round about. RSPB base within short walk. Disabled access to museum although obviously not up lighthouse. Disabled parking close to both lighthouse & rspb

Well we did not go in the lighthouse as it was not open the day we went , but you get fabulous views on this headland of Isle of Man and Ireland , its worth the trip , we were lucky it was a very sunny day . There is a great café there which does very good meals.

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

Hello, thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your visit. Sorry to hear your comment about the litter, we are constantly asking fishermen to take their litter home with them or use the bins in the car park. 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.
