The Mull of Galloway

The Mull of Galloway is the southernmost point of Scotland. It is situated in Wigtownshire, Dumfries and Galloway, at the end of the Rhins of Galloway peninsula

The Mull has one of the last remaining sections of natural coastal habitat on the Galloway coast and as such supports a wide variety of plant and animal species. It is now a nature reserve managed by the RSPB 

Feeling adventurous? Walk the 59 km long footpath known as the Mull of Galloway Trail that runs from The Mull of Galloway via Stranraer to Glennapp near Ballantrae  

The Mull of Galloway Lighthouse, built in 1828, offers fantastic views and you are able to explore inside and visit the exhibition on the ground floor  

The Visitor Centre houses impressive audio and visual displays including a DVD of the local scenery and wildlife. Listen to the sounds of the birds which are common in the area, including the kittiwake, shag, gannet and puffin. There is also extensive information on the history and geology of the Mull of Galloway

The Visitor Centre is run by donations alone and volunteers staff the Centre two days a week and are on hand to answer your questions with a view to improving local facilities and services. Visitors should take the opportunity to walk around the Reserve and enjoy its peace and tranquility and experience the feeling of being at one with nature
