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.

Fee for the lighthouse and fee for the exhibition but there is a combined ticket. Both very interesting and great view, There is a RSPB cabin...if you like bird watching. You get a nice certificate for walking up the lighthouse steps.

Decided to visit this place. What an excellent choice. Good parking and for £4 coveting entrance to the exhibition and a walk up the lighthouse, brilliant value.

We took our 4 year old son to visit the lighthouse. He was very excited. We arrived at the gift shop and were informed that the last entry to the lighthouse was 3.30pm. We got to the lighthouse at 3.25pm after purchasing items from the shop. My son was very excited. At the door there was a sign saying last... More

Having a great time views where excellent. Well maintained land. Lighthouse in excellent condition. The exception been the keeper in shop below very rude to daughter and grandson who arrived in time to visit the lighthouse. His words no you can't without a reason and walked off. Went to ask but just got ignored. So apart from that we had... More

I like lighthouses, and this one is iconic since it represents the most southerly point of Scotland. When we visited it was wind against tide so there were dramatic white horses and the tide was flowing past like a fast river. The visitor centre and RSPB interpretive centre add to the amenity.

Check out the funky buoys as you go in to the grounds :) Informative exhibition with knowledgeable volunteers. You can go up the vertiginous lighthouse if you want to. Bargain prices for a trip out. Do wander round to the rspb to have a look at their cameras and exhibition and chat with their volunteers. If you're lucky you'll be... More

This is a beautifully kept lighthouse which is located right on the southern tip of the peninsula. There is a small admission fee, a small museum to see as well as the lighthouse itself. There are 115 steps to the top where there is a member of staff to explain the workings & the history of the lighthouse. A certificate... More

We as a family love to visit the Mull of Galloway, and the views from here are great. The RSPB is worth a visit as is the tearoom & gift shop albeit a little expensive.

The drive to the lighthouse was not without incident...but I have never laughed as hard in my life! There are cows in the fields on the approach and some were making their way to the feeder troughs which bordered the track on which our car was heading up and up and up! At one point a nosey cow came right... More
