Scotland’s most southerly point

The Mull of Galloway LighthouseThe Mull of Galloway is Scotland’s most southerly point and one of the best kept secrets in the UK. The Rhins of Galloway peninsula remains an unspoiled paradise for visitors on the lookout for peace and tranquility.

Beautiful countryside awaits you in the Rhins of Galloway, together with miles of sandy beaches, splendid views and cliff top walks. Wildlife in the area is abundant and the Mull of Galloway is one of the best places in the UK to view dolphins, porpoises and many sea birds. The warm climate means that the area is blessed with six stunning gardens, each with its own individuality, and a variety of plants and trees.

Much lies in wait for you to see and do in the Rhins of Galloway and we also have a wide selection of holiday accommodation available from coastal retreats to farm steadings in some enviable locations.

The Mull of Galloway Experience

The Foghorn at the Mull of GallowayAt the award winning Mull of Galloway Experience, you can climb the 115 steps to the top of Scotland’s most southerly lighthouse, where a spectacular view from the balcony and lightroom will reward you for your efforts! For more stunning views over the cliffs, take a walk to the foghorn and viewing platform. For those keen to learn about how the lighthouse used to operate, the Lighthouse Exhibition in the old engine room has an extensive array of information.

For more information about the local birdlife, pay a visit to the RSPB visitor centre and reserve. The area is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a beautiful circular walk with viewpoints allows you to explore the 30 hectares of heathland on the reserve.

For refreshments, the popular Gallie Craig Coffee House offers a range of meals, snacks, drinks and delicious home baking.

The Mull of Galloway is owned by the Mull of Galloway Trust and the Mull of Galloway Experience is operated as a joint venture with the South Rhins Community Development Trust.
