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 visited this location on a prefect day. The sun was out, which enabled us to have fantastic show views. It was a long drive to get to the point at the light house, but well worth it. I am a confident driver but the last 100 meters to the coffee shop was daunting as it look as if the... More

Its a bit of a drive to get there but the views are so worth it, on a clear day you can see scotand (obviously), england, ireland, wales and the isle of man but it has to be very clear maybe a lovely winter day? However we could see for miles when we visited, plenty to explore inside but we... More

Beautiful place. Stunning scenery and the cafe is fantastic!! Given 4 instead of 5 as it's could be more dog and toddler friendly. But a must visit if you're in the area :)

What a great place to visit in Dumfries and Galloway. It's a wild and unspoilt place. There are a few lovely walks around the headland and longer. Unfortunately the raspberry hut was not open but still a good visit without that. The views are fantastic out to the Isle of Mann and Ireland on a clear day. Just hold on... More

My favourite place. No matter what the weather the views are always amazing. Lots happening now it is run by the Mull of Galloway Trust. Great food and home baking available at the Gallie Craig coffee house. Well worth a visit.

Had a fabulous day out here, with beautiful blue sky, walked down to the Fog Horn & watched the porpoises playing in the sea , Had tea & cakes in the cafe which was very nice with absolutely fab views out to sea , watching the Irish ferries queueing to get into Stranraer, will most definitely return

We've visited Cape Wrath, Dunnett Head and John O'Groats so we just had to do this. The climb up the lighthouse was easier than expected and well worth it for the outstanding views. You forget you're on a peninsula and feel like it's an island. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Dogs allowed in the museum but not the... More
