The lighthouse is dated, and unfortunately been partially destroyed, however it is still a great spot with beautiful views of the Northumberland Strait, PEI Ferry & Pictou Island. If you're lucky, like we were, you can get some great photos with the ferry in the...More

I'm "in" to lighthouses...this one is sad looking....needs paint etc. Hope local group will be able to handle that before too long. On point near where PEI ferry passes...good for lighthouse with ferry in background pics (if you time it correctly of course)

This is a nice scenic spot and small lighthouse which once had a building attached but has since been removed. Apparently in winter you can see baby seals offshore here.

My husband was very excited to show me the lighthouse, as it's one of his favourite places in Pictou. We went when the tide was out and walked along the little beach that it left (around 2pm). Was very enjoyable and got to watch the...More

The lighthouse itself was unremarkable. The scenery was lovely. We happened to arrive on a cold and rainy day so, our impressions might have improved on a sunny day. We did watch a Blue Heron for a while and saw several deer on the trip...More

We visited in February. What a great time! We were able to see icebergs floating by and the ocean was gorgeous! The drive out to the lighthouse is beautiful.

You can see the PEI ferry from here as well as smell the clean ocean air! Sand beaches close by. This is at the very tip of Caribou Island,

As other reviewers have stated, the lighthouse is located about 10 kilometres (six miles) off Trunk 6. It's kind of nice to see a lighthouse from a land perspective as opposed to seaside which is more usual for us.
