This lighthouse can be reached by car from downtown Tobermory in a just few minutes. Parking is limited. A secluded corner for self indulgence, and a good place to see the sunrise or the Chi-Cheemaun departing the harbour.

We were staying at resort nearby. We walked over a few times, but seeing the night divers was really special.

This small automated lighthouse is a good place to get a view of Big Tub Harbour. There is very little parking. A stay of 5to 10 minutes is sufficient.

Tobermory provides beautiful scenery to visitors but has spoiled the area by having ugly parking signs everywhere. The municipality will hurt their local tourism by erecting these eyesores in a wonderful area.

It sits on a nice point of land and the scenery is very pretty. But, it's just a lighthouse that makes for more interesting pictures by the rocks and clear water.

Make sure to stop here on your visit to Tobermory! Definitely, a must-do when you're in Tobermory. One can just sit there and relax admiring the nature and the pristine clear waters

This is at the end of a long deadend road at the entrance to Big Tub. Was closed and looked like it was in need of repair

Informative plaques by the lighthouse tell of its heyday and past light keepers. We watched the Chi-Cheemaun ferry depart the harbour from the lighthouse rocks. Some people swim here but it was a cool evening and water felt too cold to wade in. Beautiful place...More
