This is lovely little lighthouse with a very unique design. Instead of being tall and round it is square and appears rather squat. It was built in 1855 and has a balcony that juts out toward the sea - very much like balconies seen on...More

This is a lovely little park on a point of land at one end of the town. Easy to find it has lots of parking so you can get out of your car and take a short stroll to see the lighthouse. Not a big...More

What a lovely little walk to a pretty little park. The signage around the park takes you back to early days of privateers and shipping as well as natural history! It's a lovely walk with a war monument and two cannons, a gorgeous view of...More

This lighthouse comes with a beautiful view and a really great story. Can't tell, you have to visit. It has a small gift shop and a very special charm. Don't forget to toot!

This isn't a tall lighthouse but you can climb it and blow the fog horn and it's free! If you are a lighthouse enthusiast it it definitely worth a visit. Restrooms on the premises and free parking.

The building is pristine, the video interesting, fun to toot the horn! Stairs are steep of course, and low ceilings make it challenging to stand on the top floor, but heck, it's a lighthouse, not a hotel. Lovely service at the desk.

Visited here as we drove around Nova Scotia. Spent a pleasant time climbing to the top and listening to a former lighthouse keeper's son describe a saving situation he undertook. Possibly a good stop for those driving and needing a break. By the way the...More

This is a cool little light with a museum inside and a video of its history. Take time to watch it, it's very interesting! The view from above and below is great!
