Literally you feel like you're on the edge of the earth. It is so beautiful here and we could see dolphins right from the shore. I love Brier island - it's a great spot to just unwind and breathe.

These light houses are beautiful - -a must see when in the Brier Island area. Take a moment to view the lighthouses and just breathe in the fresh air of the coast. Well taken care of grounds and lighthouses.

It's neat to see this remote attraction. The fog horn was sounding because it was foggy when we were there. Not something you experience every day

Great place to relax and enjoy the spectacular view of the ocean behind the lighthouse. So peaceful.

We highly recommend driving to visit the lighthouse, its not as picturesque as some lighthouses, unless you visit at sunset or see whales breaching off the coast- a definite possiblility.

Many lighthouses in Nova Scotia each unique. Gravel road. Up on a hill area can see a long way down the bay.

Definitely worth the stop for a few minutes to look around here. Typical Nova Scotia lighthouse, worth a visit.

Picturesque lighthouse in a remote area. Sits atop some interesting rock formations and has a lovely fog horn sound. Great area to hike, explore and go bouldering.

A beautiful spot to visit, see the lighthouse and take great pictures of the harbour, as well as the boats coming and going.

On our Canadian vacation, we had an opportunity to see several lighthouses. This one was short and square. We had an opportunity to drive around Brier Island and saw 3 of the lighthouses. The Coast Guard is located at this one. At times, you can...More
