Mull of Galloway

The Mull of Galloway is the most southerly point in Scotland. The long peninsula is situated in on the south west coast of Scotland in Dumfries & Galloway. This area has a natural coastal habitat which is now run by the RSPB and supports a wide range of plant and animal species.

At the end of the headland sits a lighthouse built by Robert Stevenson in 1830. The white-painted round tower is 26 metres (85 ft) high and the light is 99 metres (325 ft) above sea level and has a range of 28 nautical miles (52 km). The lighthouse is now automatic and an old outhouse has been converted into a visitor centre, run by the South Rhins Community Development Trust, a group of local people and businesses. In 2013 there was a community buyout and the Mull of Galloway Trust purchased land and buildings, with the exception of the tower, from Northern Lighthouse Board. In 2004 a new café was built at the Mull of Galloway, called the “Gallie Craig”. Its design incorporates into the landscape with a turf roof, giving views across to Ireland and South to the Isle of Man.

A visit to the lighthouse is a must and climbing the 115 steps gives you spectacular views out over the point and over the sea to Cumbria, Ireland and the Isle of Man.

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.
