Go to the Light … we’ve got 6 amazing Lighthouses to check out!

September is perfect for hitting the road and visiting the lighthouses along the Lighthouse Route (Rte 3).

Bookmarked by Peggy’s Cove just outside Halifax and Cape Forchu in Yarmouth, here in our neighbourhood we’ve got their lovely sisters – have you met them yet? If not we invite you to for sure!

#1: Fort Point Lighthouse in Liverpool is within a park, that you can enter and climb to the top of.

#2 & #3: In Port Medway there’s Port Medway Head and Long Cove Lighthouses.

#4 & #5: The highlight of Western Head loop, is the Western Head Lighthouse and the view of Coffin Island Light from Moose Harbour.

#6: Just around the corner from us here at White Point in Port Mouton Bay is Spectacle Island Lighthouse too.

Here’s a map (and brochure) of them all thanks to our friends at the Region of Queens Municipality, followed by and some of our favourite pictures we’ve collected of them.
