About Mull of Galloway Lighthouse Holiday Cottages

The Mull of Galloway Lighthouse Holiday Cottages in Dumfries and Galloway 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 former keepers cottages offer a truly unique experience. The cottages are surrounded by beautiful scenery, dramatic coastline, spectacular sea views and a wealth of wildlife right on your doorstep.

Our self-catering holiday accommodation is sited within the Lighthouse walls, next to the Stevenson Lighthouse with breath-taking sea views. The holiday accommodation is spacious, fully equipped and tastefully decorated. Included in your holiday or short break are bed linen and towels together with a welcome tray on your arrival.

There are three cottages to choose from and group bookings are also welcome - Lightkeeper’s Cottage sleeps up to 4 guests, Puffin House and Kittiwake House both sleep up to 6 guests.

We offer 7 or 14 night holidays all year round including Christmas and New Year. Short breaks of 3 nights or more are also available. Pets are welcome too (2 per cottage per stay).

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 the Mull of Galloway Trust. Currently the only operational Foghorn on mainland Scotland is located at the Mull of Galloway.

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).

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 Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) Register No. SC043557 and owns and operates 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.
