Mull of Galloway campaign underway

People living around the famous Mull of Galloway lighthouse could end up owning most of the historic site.

The company which has owned the site for nearly 200 years is selling off 30 acres of land and buildings.

A campaign is getting underway by some locals to try and secure the site.

As a result, The Mull of Galloway Trust has been set up.

Under Scottish law, the group get first refusal on the land after it has been valued by the Scottish Government.

The money to buy the site, which doesn't include the lighthouse, which is still operational and owned by the Northern Lighthouse Board, will come from a grant.

A meeting is being held next Thursday to try and get support from people living in the Kirkmaiden parish.
