Along the way there are spectacular views which extend to Ireland, the Isle of Man, Wales and the Lake District coast on a clear day.

Arriving at the Mull, which is now in the community ownership of the Mull of Galloway Trust, there is time for a choice of activities. 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 and a guide will conduct a short walk for those wishing to explore the cliffs and view the nesting birds.

At 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 light room 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. Alternatively, enjoy a cup of coffee in the Gallie Craig cafe, an award-winning, environmentally sensitive building with its famous turf roof and spectacular glass viewing area.
