The Mull of Galloway is the spectacular southernmost tip of Scotland, its windswept headland dominated by Robert Stevenson's 1830 lighthouse, its impressive cliffs home to teeming seabird colonies. This is a short route of two loops, totalling 2½ miles with optional diversions; the views are superb. A longer alternative (Walk 4873) was added in July 2008.

The RSPB's Mull of Galloway Nature Reserve has a visitor centre here, open daily from 10am to 5pm.
