Mull of Galloway Lighthouse Holiday Cottages

Mull of Galloway Lighthouse, Dumfries and Galloway

The Mull of Galloway Lighthouse Holiday Cottages in Dumfries and Galloway, south west Scotland are the perfect choice for your next self-catering holiday. Located at the Mull of Galloway Lighthouse at the most Southerly point in Scotland, our three cottages offer a truly unique experience. Surrounded by beautiful scenery, dramatic coastline and a wealth of wildlife right on your doorstep.

The self-catering holiday accommodation is sited within the Lighthouse walls, next to the Stevenson Lighthouse with breath-taking sea views.

The Mull of Galloway Trust

The Lighthouse Cottages were part of a local community buy-out in 2013 of the land at Scotland’s most southerly point from the Northern Lighthouse Board. The Mull of Galloway Trust was formed in 2012 with the objective of acquiring and preserving the area of national and local importance for the community and visitors to the area. The Mull of Galloway Trust is a registered Charity (Scottish Charity Register No. SC043557) and now owns the three former Lighthouse Keepers’ Cottages, RSPB Visitor Centre, 30 acres of heathland, which is an RSPB Nature Reserve, and the Foghorn. The three Lighthouse Holiday Cottages offer holiday accommodation all year round and contribute valuable funds to the Community Trust. The Lighthouse is owned and operated by Northern Lighthouse Board.

A working Lighthouse at the Mull of Galloway

At the Mull of Galloway there is a working Lighthouse which was established in 1830 by Robert Stevenson. The tower is 26 meters high and there are 115 steps to the top. Visit the top and learn about the history of this Stevenson Tower, admire the sea views and amazing natural beauty of the environment from this elevated position. Enjoy the views across to the Isle of Man, the Cumbrian hills and across to Ireland and the Mountains of Mourne. Lighthouse Tours are by kind permission of the Northern Lighthouse Board and are operated by South Rhins Community Development Trust.

You can visit our community operated Lighthouse Exhibition and coastal heathland and cliffs, which is also an RSPB Seabird Reserve. The Trust works in partnership with the RSPB to improve the heathland, which is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
