After ploughing through muddy roads and being engulfed in the sea mist, we were welcomed by Ranger Mick, an engaging and knowledgeable guide. Wildlife abounds and as the mist lifted we realised what a great location Cape Borda is.
We stayed at the light keeper’s cottage which is large, comfortable and fully equipped. Don't miss Mick's tour, or the great little reading room with copies of the log books telling what daily life was like for a light keeper.
This is the most remote of the three lighthouses, with no shops or houses close by it provides a real feeling of what life would have been like for light keepers and their families – but with modern amenities.
