The Mull of Galloway Trust are delighted to announce that the top of the Lighthouse is now an authorised location for civil weddings and humanist ceremonies.

They can now offer ceremonies in the lantern room and the balcony for couples or for small intimate wedding parties.

The Lighthouse was built by Robert Stevenson and was first lit on March 26, 1830. The tower stands 26 metres high and the light is 99 metres above sea level. The light remains operational and has a nominal range of 28 nautical miles.

The Mull of Galloway Lighthouse is one of very few Lighthouses where weddings can take place. Weddings and tower tours are by kind permission of Northern Lighthouse Board.

There are other spectacular locations available at the Mull of Galloway for larger weddings of up to 25 guests including the Lightkeeper’s Walled Garden, the lawn or courtyard by the tower, inside the visitor centre or by the side of the vintage engines in the engine room.
