Situated on the southernmost tip of Scotland the lighthouse gives you great views over the sea to mainland Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man. The volunteers were most informative about the history and the operation of the lighthouse.

The RSPB reserve and little shop/exhibition building close to the lighthouse is worth visiting. Live feed of gannets and kittiwake nests. Lovely views out to sea. Some radio ham event on when I visited. Nearby cafe with ‘green’ roof worth visiting.
