The Mull of Galloway Trust has told the Scottish Government it wants to buy the 30 acre site.
The Northern Lighthouse Board is selling off everything apart from the lighthouse, for around £340,000.
The Trust wants people living around the area, which is known as Scotland's Lands End, to buy the site with the help of money from the Scottish Land Fund.
They have already received funding from the Big Lottery Fund to help with costs.
