  • Wow, the best light house on the island, quite secluded and the most breath taking view.
  • Absolutely gorgeous setting for a gorgeous lighthouse. The view from the top of the bluff it sits on overlooks a good portion of the island as well as the coast (where you'll see seals!). Well worth the trip up.
  • beautiful location
  • Beautiful light house and worth stopping by to walk around it if you are in the area. There are a couple of days a year that it is open so that you can walk up and see the view from the top. Check the website for times to see if it coincides with your visit.
  • Breathtaking at sunrise.
