There was an easy pathway, if you don't mind the suspended bridge, to get to the lighthouse. There is a chance you can see marine mammals, although we only saw a seal poke their nose out of the water. If you are afraid of heights, prepare yourself. You are on top of the world.

This spot has recently been renovated and the views of 360" are amazing. It is easily negotiated.I have knee issues and I was able to climb to the top of the lighthouse for a picture.

We walked around and didn't take the tour as we thought that the price was unreasonable. Had troubles getting a good picture due the garbage on shore. Common problem in grand manan.

The view was fabulous. The lighthouse was gorgeous, especially with the ocean as the backdrop. The scene is incredibly panoramic, especially when taking pictures from the top of the hill, looking down on the lighthouse.
