Land that has been part of the Mull of Galloway Lighthouse for the past 183 years is to be put up for sale. The Northern Lighthouse Board has decided to sell the 30 acre reserve on Scotland's most southerly point.
The sale includes all of the buildings apart from the actual lighthouse tower and the quarter decks. They will continue to be a fully operational navigation aid.
