Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: The Mull of Galloway is Scotland's most southerly point and 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 have regular engine demonstrations and group bookings are welcome. Our vintage engines are now being refurbished and are running again after 30 years. The engines used to generate the air for the fog horn. We have three former Lighthouse Keepers' cottages available for holidays throughout the year. Short breaks are available in low season. Pets are welcome. The cottages can be booked individually or as a group - we can accommodate 16 guests plus infants. The Mull of Galloway is now a certified location for weddings.

On a good day the views must be spectacular with views that would stretch for miles. Hope you have a head for heights.

The lighthouse stands proud and the Mull positively shines in all it's glory, a truly beautiful place to visit and not to be missed. The exhibition staff prove very helpful but it wasn't very nice to hear one particular staff member gossiping about a customer who'd visited previously, professionality was not her strongest point and sadly let the team down!

An evening's drive down the Mull, very atmospheric. The site is marvellously evocative of the isolation of the lives of lighthouse keepers' and their families, a lovely cliff top walk, plenty of cattle

We thought it would be nice to visit the most southern tip of Scotland & we were right! Eventually after miles of single track road & cattle grids we came upon the lighthouse standing their in all it's glory! It was a very wet day we went & the view wasn't great but the sun did come out briefly & we managed to see Ireland & the Isle of Man. Well worth the visit. But you need time to walk all round the paths, round the cliff.

Thankfully we arrived to a very sunny day, views are amazing although the lighthouse tower was closed so left a bit disappointed, I think this should be opened everyday in May as tourists like myself may only be in the area on certain days and specifically drove 100 miles just to see this attraction & the drive isn't the easiest but worth it for the views. Tea room was very nice.

Hi Jannette, I'm sorry to hear about your disappointment at the Lighthouse tower being closed when you visited the Mull of Galloway this week.
The tower and the exhibition are manned by a team of volunteers, although we open the exhibition daily during the season we are unable to open the tower daily.
We have increased our opening hours this year for the tower. We open every weekend and bank holiday and are open additional Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays during July and August. Our opening times are available on our website http://www.mull-of-galloway.co.uk/mull-of-galloway-experience/
We hope you will find an opportunity to visit us again soon.
