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.

We recently stayed at the lighthousekeepers cottages at the Mull of Galloway lighthouse. We booked all three for a week for a family celebration. The location is spectacular, the views from the lighthouse are stunning, the cottages are extremely comfortable and well appointed. The fabulous Gallie Craig Coffee Shop on site was well used by our party during our week's... More

Small fee to go to the top of the lighthouse and museum of £2.50 (Aug 15). Well worth it and understandable to cover staff costs, repairs etc. Excellent customer service given by both the man in the museum and the girl at the top of the lighthouse. Both were very informative and knew a great deal about the lighthouse. Both... More

Wow!!!!....gorgeous location, cliffs and sea all around, very most southerly part of Scotland and just breathtaking. Climb up 115 steps and go out on the balcony to walk round and admire the landscape. Not for the faint hearted or those afraid of hights, it is completely out of the way, once you arrive its very much worth it.

On clear days you get great views of the sea and the Isle of Man and Northern Ireland. Great place for bird watching. The visitor attraction centre provides for a wealth of information about the landscape.

This is a wonderful place to visit. It really brings home why light houses, and the amazing people who looked after them, are rightly seen as examples of heroism. Climb the lighthouse if you have the stamina. It is well worth the effort! There is also a great tea room with awesome views over the sea to the Isle of... More

We spent around 2 hours here, visited the exhibition and climbed to the top of the lighthouse to enjoy the wonderful views (got our certificate!) called in to the RSPB centre next door and enjoyed lunch on the windswept terrace with our dog. Plenty of parking and things for children to buy. Reached by a few miles of single track... More

After climbing the keep-fit steps to the top you enter ( "mind you head" ) a very small space containing the lights. But what a view ! Luck was with us as the weather was clear and sunny. Went outside but not for long, the wind was strong and even with the handrail it still seemed a tad 'iffy'. Didn't... More

We avoided rain but hadn't counted on the wind! Really nice cafe with good choice of food at reasonable price. Toilets clean. Kids enjoyed going up the lighthouse too. Worth a visit but wrap up warm!

The lighthouse gives amazing views and is reasonable in price. Friendly Staff, it was a nice but very windy walk, worth the drive

Beautiful place in the middle of nowhere you can see for miles! Went up the lighthouse which is actually higher than it looks from the ground!! Has a good gift shop and lovely food served in the cafe. If you want to get away from it all and experience wild Scotland this is a must see!
