Mull of Galloway Lighthouse Holiday Cottages

There are three stunning Mull of Galloway Lighthouse Holiday Cottages available for holidays and short breaks at Scotland’s most Southerly Point –  Lightkeeper’s Cottage, Kittiwake House and Puffin House. The three former Lighthouse Keepers’ Cottages are fully equipped, centrally heated, spacious and comfortable.

  • Lightkeeper’s Cottage sleeps up to 4 people in 2 comfortable bedrooms – one double and one twin.
  • Puffin House has 3 bedrooms – one double and two twin rooms sleeping up to 6 people.
  • Kittiwake House has 3 bedrooms – one superking and two twin rooms sleeping up to 6 people.

The Lighthouse Holiday Cottages are also pet friendly. The three cottages can be booked individually or booked together to cater for larger groups of family and friends.

The Mull of Galloway Lighthouse Cottages were home to the Lighthouse Keepers’ and their families who used to live and work at the Lighthouse. The Lighthouse was first lit on 26th March 1830 and was engineered by Robert Stevenson. In 1988 the Lighthouse was demanned and is now remotely monitored by Northern Lighthouse Board in Edinburgh.

Sea views and Wildlife

There are stunning sea views across to the Isle of Man, Galloway coast, Cumbria and Ireland. Located on a nature reserve managed by RSPB and with a wealth of wildlife on the doorstep and coastal walks these cottages are the perfect retreat for a lover of the great outdoors.

Climb the Lighthouse

For Lighthouse fans you can even climb the Lighthouse during the summer months and visit the fascinating Exhibition of Lighthouse History. Experience the only operational Foghorn on mainland Scotland with regular engine demonstrations and blasts.

    "“What a lovely way to unwind! Sea on all sides. Long walks on the peninsular (didn’t see another soul!) and a Lighthouse as light the way on our last dog walk of the night! Feel fully recharged. Accommodation meets every need: clean, warm and comfortable. Lee can recommend the full english breakfast at the Gallie Craig (sorry All day breakfast!). I stand corrected! The Waterfont Hotel at Portpatrick does fantastic meals and the setting is fantastic. Great day out at the Isle of Arran – best to go and stay over, long drive but worth it and Ferry was fun! Can’t wait to come back – hopefully Christmas time!”"
