The Highland Lighthouse, the oldest lighthouse at Cape Cod dating back to 1857, is located off South Highland Road. The lighthouse is open daily from 10am with public tours for a $4 fee throughout the year from mid-May to mid-October. Known locally as the Highland Light, the officially named Cape Cod Light stands 120 feet and a climb up the narrow steep stairs rewards visitors with fantastic views of the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Cod/Massachusetts Bay, Provincetown Monument as well as the local Highlands of Truro. Local fund raising has secured a new safe site for the Light a little further inland due to the danger of dune erosion of its original site. Unfortunately viewing of the original location and ocean has somewhat restricted access due a golf course (and golfers) between the light and the coastline. Worth a visit, there is car parking and a decent souvenir shop on site.
