It's in the middle of nowhere, but well worth going off the well worn path to visit this lighthouse. The road in to the site is bad, but this historic building makes for some great photo opportunities. Located high on a hill overlooking the Minas...More

A group of coworkers and I went to the Walton lighthouse after attending an all day business meeting. We parked and took a nice stroll out to the lighthouse and enjoyed the evening views and saltwater air. We were able to look back at the...More

A lovely little lighthouse in the tiny village of Walton. It is no longer in use, that is why you can climb to the top - just remember to climb down the way you climbed up, ladder=like, 3 flights up! It is run by volunteers...More

My partner and I had the opportunity to visit the Walton Lighthouse with our personal tour guide en route to Burntcoat Head park. It was a brief stop, but well worth it. This little lighthouse is situated on a beautiful rocky bluff and is noteworthy...More

This is an easy drive off the highway ending in a windy lookout over the water. The historic lighthouse is open to visitors and allows you to climb up to the light level to examine and photograph the old oil lamp.

This is a cute little lighthouse that you can travel up into! It's not far from Burntcoat Head Park so hitting up both in one day can be a nice day trip. There are a couple of picnic tables, a little shop, and a very...More

Went to this beautiful place on July 3 while waiting for low tide as it is only 20 minutes away from the Burntcoat Head Park. It has a small walking trail and a souvenir shop with a small food truck beside it. The first lighthouse...More

We were looking for a good spot to watch the Bay of Fundy tide come in and happened upon this light house at the top of a bluff overlooking miles of the bay of Fundy. Got to watch the awesome tidal change, fishing boats and...More

Although route 215 goes through lovely country, the narrow road is a bit tiring to travel. It is not as well maintained as the major highways of Nova Scotia. Also, there are few amenities, such as service stations or the wonderful Nova Scotia Information Centers....More
