Mull of Galloway Experience
Climb a Lighthouse
At the Four Star Visit Scotland Visitor Attraction the 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.
