We have now crossed from the East Coast of Scotland to the West Coast and we are staying for a few days near the Mull of Galloway and made a return visit to Scotlands most Southerly Light House which just happened to be open tothe public today. After a full Scotish breakfast at the Mull’s visitor centre for the sake of creating this blog I undertook a risky ascent.

I climbed the 115 steps to the light room of the lighthouse and took in the views from the top. Perched on the cliff looked a long way down it was .The light  stands 99m above sea level, It was built by Robert Stevenson, with work commencing in 1828 and taking two years to complete on 26th March 1830 it was 1st lit with an automatic light remaining operational today.
