The Mull of Galloway
The Mull of Galloway is Scotland's most southerly point.
The building originally housed the workmen who built the Mull of Galloway Lighthouse in 1828 and was later extended to act as a byre for the lighthouse keepers. It was decided to utilise the derelict building which was renovated sympathetically to blend in with its surroundings, with the aim of keeping a balance between the needs of man and nature, wildlife had to be the prime concern.
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.
