Description
Mull of Galloway was built by Robert Stevenson, founding father of the generations of Stevensons who built the Scottish lighthouses. Like all of Scotland's lighthouses, it is automatic. In 1987, the foghorn sounded for the last time and overnight made all of the keepers bar one redundant. It is one of the few lighthouses open to the public and is open from Easter through till the end of October. Because the Mull of Galloway is Scotland's most southerly point, the lighthouse gets visitors from around the world. The National Trust for Scotland has cottages there that can be rented out.
