The Mull of Galloway
The Mull of Galloway is an area on the Rhins Peninsula which was used as a lighthouse with several lighthouse keepers cottages. The buildings are still there but have been developed into what is known as the Mull of Galloway Experience. The cottages are now holiday lets. This area is the most southerly point of Scotland and from the viewing area at the top of the lighthouse you can actually see across to four countries, Scotland, England, Ireland and Isle of Man. The Experience offers the visitor, the Lighthouse Light Room, the Engine Room, the Fog Horn and workshops. There is also the Gallie Craig Coffee House and Visitor Centre nearby offering spectacular views, a warm welcome and the possibility of seeing porpoises or basking sharks from the viewing terrace. As well as this is the RSPB Reserve and Visitor Centre where you can watch nesting birds and hundreds of gannets on Scar Rock.
