Details

Everywhere you turn there’s a stunning view. To the west is the Solway Firth and Irish Sea, with the Isle of Man in the distance.  In summertime, all around you is the frenzied activity of a large cliff colony of sea birds, including guillemots, razorbills and kittiwakes. You can also see the coast of Northern Ireland and Cumbria (in clear weather).

Meanwhile, the coastal heath of the cliff tops is also alive with wildlife, including rare butterflies, and more birds like the linnet and the stonechat. If you’re new to birdwatching the most southerly point of Scotland is a great place to start. Take care on the cliff paths.

The reserve is open at all times and is free, but donations to help us continue our work here are welcome. The RSPB visitor centre is open from Easter to end of October.

Dog walkers please bear in mind that this nature reserve is important for wildlife. RSPB Scotland welcomes responsible access, in line with the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. During the ground-nesting bird breeding season (1 April to 15 August) we request that you keep your dog close to you, preferably on a short lead, clean up after your dog and that you keep to the paths.

Viewing platform at foghorn overlooks seabird colonies. Access via steep steps. This viewing area has no disabled access. There is also a circular trail – not suitable for wheelchair or pushchairs; wheelchair access is possible to visitor centre and café. The path to the foghorn viewing platform and to cliff-top viewing areas is steep or stepped in parts and not accessible by wheelchair.

Tour of lighthouse at weekends and bank holidays during the summer for a small fee (not RSPB managed).

The neighbouring Gallie Craig café is located near the main car park and has an excellent full café menu, with meals available (not RSPB-run).
