We travled way off the beaten path to check out this Light house. It was not to exciting and we were here in the off season and it was closed.

Out of the way lighthouse, pretty run down looking. Took a photo, then left... really not worth the drive off the beaten path. Much better lighthouses to see.

Take the guided tour at no extra cost and learn about the lighthouse's connection to Marconi and The Titanic. Climb to the top for a beautiful view.

We planned to visit quite a few lighthouses on the PEI, and this one definitely on the list, but after arriving at the site, the small size and the cost ($4 a head) put us off completely.

Love visiting this old historic lighthouse. There is so much history from this lighthouse and you are able to climb to the top.

It's $4 a head to "tour" which does not take very long - some interesting artifacts that link to the lighthouse and long gone Marconi station (that apparently intercepted the 1st Titanic distress calls) have been assembled there.

Beautiful views of a non-restored lighthouse. The area around was beautiful, however the lighthouse itself was closed to visitors on the day I was there.
