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. Visit our website for seasonal opening times and to plan your visit.

We also have three former Lighthouse Keepers' holiday cottages available for holidays or short breaks throughout the year.

Dumfries and Galloway has recently been voted Holiday Destination of the Year by BBC Countryfile Magazine.

We tok our 10 and 12 year old grandchildren to Mull of Galloway lighthouse on a sunny day. It feels like an adventure on the single track road as you approach the Mull, but there is ample car parking when you arrive. We opted for a family ticket to climb the lighthouse and visit the exhibition. Obviously you need to... More

I visited the Mull of Galloway recently with my family. We all had a lovely day,lucky for us it was a nice sunny day. We paid the small fee to climb the lighthouse. The views at the top are amazing & my daughter was over the moon at the end when we were giving certificates for climbing up. We had... More

On a perfect summers day we drove from Glasgow to Mull of Galloway. The lighthouse was our destination for a picnic lunch. We climbed to the top of the lighthouse and were rewarded with spectacular views over the water and a certificate. The lighthouse was built by Robert Louis Stevenson's grandfather and the author spent holidays here. Enjoyed beautiful countryside... More

Well worth the drive down , superb views to Ireland, Galloway and the Isle of Man . Nice walks around the sea cliffs spotting the various seabirds. Interesting lighthouse museum and R.S.P.B. Centre.

Lots of interesting things to see - climb the light house and get a certificate. Right next to RSPB centre with DVDs and things to do. We did this on a rainy day but was still really fun to do. Kids loved it

Considering how much you hear about "Land's End to John O'Groats" I'm amazed there isn't more attention paid to the Southernmost tip of Scotland and the Mull of Galloway Experience. Surely people must walk, run or cycle Mull of Galloway to John O'Groats!? Perhaps being slightly under the radar is a good thing, though, as on an incredibly sunny August... More

Camping in our motorhomes above beautiful Port Patrick, we felt that we had to venture south to the very tip of the Mull. We took one van and enjoyed the beautiful drive from Galloway Point Caravan site (excellent) to our destination. Parking was very close to the lighthouse and cafe and free! We wandered up to the lighthouse and we... More

Amazing lighthouse and surrounding scenery . Great value at£2.50 per person to go inside and up to the top. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and took time to speak to us about the lighthouse and our visit to the area. Well worth a visit

Super day out, Windy but didn't put you off being able to climb this working lighthouse, then go down into the Museum to learn all about it. Fantastic experience, very affordable and the Views on a clear day what amazing view for miles. The museum is a great insight into its workings back in the day, the staff are very... More
