“Fascinating trip into our history”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Welcoming knowledgeable steward, good audio visual film and most interesting displays brought to life the reality of being a lighthouse keeper in the nineteenth century.

“Views are amazing”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Went to see the lighthouse and was lucky enough to find the tower itself was open for visitors to climb. We (including my 3 yr old daughter) climbed the 115 steps to the top and got some great views of the Isle of Man, Cumbria and Ireland.
The exhibition itself was interesting but not much for young children.

“Another visit to the Mull”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Exhibition at the Mull has a few new artefacts and Crammag Head Light is now on display. Good to see new exhibits. The Tower is still open and the views are fantastic. Well worth a visit.

“An oasis of calm in a hectic world”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

We stayed here in the Lighthouse Keepers cottage from 4th to 11 th August 2012. This was a magical holiday, Kittiwakes and other seabirds nesting on the cliff at the back of the cottage, a peregrin falcon glimpsed, and the most wonderfull views.

“Scotland's most Southerly Lighthouse”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

This place is definitly worth a visit but make sure it's a clear day or you will miss out on some fantastic views. We paid to go into the exhibition and to go up the Lighthouse and both are worth it. Also save £1 when do both things. The Lighthouse is no good for anyone who suffers with walking but otherwhise worth it for those who are up for a climb. You also get a certificate to say you've done it. Great views of the Isle of Man, Ireland and Luce Bay. A visit to the cafe is also nice, their Date & Walnut and Cheese scones are brill!
