Nova Scotia Lighthouses
As a long island like peninsula in Atlantic Canada, Nova Scotia’s coasts have been protected for centuries by several faithful lighthouses. These historic buildings are now touristic landmarks. When you go there you shouldn’t miss the Lighthouse Route – you will not regret.
I visited a few if not all of them and here they are – Click on them for a larger format:
#1. Sandy Point lighthouse at low tide in the fog. Shelburne, Nova Scotia (South East of the peninsula)
#2. Pubnico, Yarmouth area
#3, Digby on the Bay of Fundy: a lighthouse that has been transformed into a restaurant. This was the place where we took a small Ferry to go East.
#4. A red and white striped lighthouse Briar Island. This is a small beautiful island North-West of Digby on the Bay of Fundy.
… And here is another lighthouse on Briar Island, Nova Scotia, overlooking Fundy Bay:
#5. Cape Breton is a big island on the East side of Nova Scotia, with many places to visit and things to see.
#5a. The lighthouse of Louisburg. On the South-East part of Cape Breton this lighthouse has helped the sea navigation to the Fortress of Louisbourg. It has been destroyed several times during the battles between French and English during 1730 and 1758. I photographed it in a sunny September day.
#5b. The lighthouse at Gabarus, Cape Breton. Gabarus is a small fishing village South-East of the island
I really liked this one, so I made an enhanced version of it:
#5c. Regatta time in front of the lighthouse in Baddeck, Cape Breton, on Bras D’or Lake. * Bras d’Or is the largest inland sea in Canada and it’s 1/3 of the Cape Breton island area.
#6. Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse that you can see in my other post
