Mull of Galloway

The southernmost tip of Scotland, the Mull of Galloway has a splendid lighthouse, bustling seabird colonies, dramatic cliff scenery and stunning views. This walk explores the coast on both sides of the peninsula. A shorter option is also given, returning along the road from West Tarbet which reduces the walk to 3.5km.


Grassy clifftop path, field edges and paths, minor road.

Public Transport

None to start.
