    Highly recommend
    A rare treat to go up a lighthouse, made all the better by the guide who was knowledgeable and passionate about his subject. Views were amazing from the top. Cafe was great with sandwiches, cakes and icecream all reasonably priced. Our children aged 6 & 8 both enjoyed the lighthouse and exploring the rocks below. Well worth the visit.

    Great cafe
    This is a fantastic cafe. The fresh and delicious sandwiches and cakes are good value plus the coffee is in a good sized mug. The views from various tables are beautiful. The loos are clean. Definitely to be recommended!

    Our third visit to this fabulous location, situated high on a hill with a 360 degree view of the Atlantic Ocean and numerous islands. Its an amazing place, the views are stunning and the guide was excellent. The cafe serves a good selection of freshly made sandwiches and cakes etc, its reasonably priced, there’s plenty of seating inside and out. We sailed on the ferry from Tobermory to Kilchoan, which takes around 30 minutes, it was a warm sunny day, the Sound of Mull was flat and calm and the views were spectacular. Its a great day out.

    Definitely not the first time it’s been called that. Squeezed in a Sunday morning visit before the Kilchoan Ferry over to Tobermory so didn’t do the tour but just to state what a lovely wee cafe with great coffee and baking. This place really clings on to the rest of the world by its fingernails which was plain to see on a breezy morning with the waves crashing on to the rocks. And the unexpected experience of Britain’s most westerly set of traffic lights too. Worth the winding six miles or so over from Kilchoan for sure.

I’m fortunate in that my job takes me to this fantastic place and the surrounding area. Even if I’m not actually visiting the Lighthouse in a professional capacity, I just love going there. It’s a special, even if remote and rugged, place. But that adds to the beauty.

Davie, who is the site manager, is a fabulous and interesting guy. His knowledge of the lighthouse and the area in particular is second to none. He is the perfect person in the perfect role.

The road out to the Point is challenging. If you haven’t driven it before then PLEASE treat it with respect. I’ve driven it countless times at different times of the year and in all weathers - it’s not a road you’ll get to do any sort of speed on, so don’t even try. Enjoy the scenery but take care.

As for that scenery? You’re in for a real treat; it’s jaw-droppingly stunning. From the Corran Ferry all the way out to the Lighthouse itself you’ll be spellbound with a different gorgeous vista around every corner.

And if you like wildlife, there’s an abundance of it. From the sheep that like to lie on the narrow road to otters frolicking in the bays, to Red Deer Stags that pop out from the forrests to the White Tailed Eagles that you may be lucky enough to see soar above the rocky pinnacles, to the pods of dolphin cutting through the waters of Loch Sunart. This area has an amazing array awaiting you.

As for the Lighthouse itself, it’s a remarkable structure. The views are simply breathtaking - even if you don’t visit the summit. The wee cafe and exhibition centre are fabulous and informative. But it’s those views. If you’re lucky enough to visit on a clear day you will not be disappointed.

If you’re visiting the area then do yourself a favour and go. It’s a must-see.

We arrived and visited the coffee shop and visitor centre which had wonderful coffee and a good selection of cakes and sandwiches,very surprising given the remote location.
Tickets for tour were purchased and after climbing 152 steps we reached the tour guide at the top of the lighthouse
The guide was very informative and interesting with a wealth of knowledge.
The views from the top were stunning. Red deer on the hills ,seals in the bay below and views to the small isles.
Well worth the 5 miles on single track - A very interesting morning

We had previously travelled to see the lighthouse but it was closed for renovations.
We were determined to go on this trip and we did on a gorgeous sunny day.
The coffee shop was going to be closing hut were happy to serve us in take out cups - delicious coffee ☕️ 😋.
It was great to sit out side n watch the waves and amaze at the colours of the water lapping the shore and rocks.
We will definitely call again earlier in the day to sample their food aswell as coffee.
Susan is a very friendly cheerful assistant and was happy to chat.
