After we visited Sandhead Beach and tired out the dogs we headed down the coastline to the most southerly point in Scotland. The Mull of Galloway. It was only about 20-30mins away, a lovely drive. All normal roads until approaching the Visitor Centre where it is single track with passing points.
Again the winds were incredible!!!! Icy cold and blowing us off our feet! The views even from the carpark were incredible. Sadly the Visitor Centre wasn’t open, very little is open in January unfortunately. But of course the upside is that there is hardly anyone else there. We pretty much had the place to ourselves which was fantastic!
Below are photos I took of the Irish Sea, incredible view!!
Then we went in for a look around, I had been excited to find the sign post with signs to Lands End, John O’Groats, Belfast, London etc as I had seen on other websites, but sadly I think it had been damaged by the wind as all that was left was a blue post with no signs on it 🙁 Hopefully it will be fixed ready for everything opening again in April though.
There was still plenty to see. I did head down to the most southerly point, but I didn’t go right down as it was far to windy and I was a bit scared I’d get blown over the edge!
As well as this and the views there is of course the stunning lighthouse and even a helipad!!!
Great experience going here, even with the strong winds. It’s not always windy here, it just happened to be really windy the day we went. An awesome place to visit and I’ll probably go back if I get the chance when the visitor centre is open. Walking around was easy with the dogs (although we kept them on the lead) and the kids loved it too!
