Cape George Lighthouse

10 Most Photogenic Lighthouses in Nova Scotia

Known for its lighthouses, and rightly so, Nova Scotia has some of the most beautiful in the world. The photographic opportunities are many, and if you find yourself in this region, you need to check out these gorgeous landmarks.

Peggy's Cove Lighthouse

Peggys Cove Lighthouse

No post like this would be complete without Nova Scotia’s most famous landmark, the iconic Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse. This lighthouse is a prime photographer’s location. The shooting location is especially suitable for the capture of sunsets and sunrises. Often littered with tourists, it is usually best to visit early or late in the season when it is cold. Even then a few people will be wandering the rocks. Also, when shooting this stunning lighthouse, please remember to stay off the black rocks!

Louisburg Lighthouse

Louisburg is a great place to visit, but it is easy to miss this lighthouse. The Louisburg Lighthouse is a classic red and white lighthouse that is easily accessible. Surrounded by wildflowers, this lighthouse stands on the site of the first Lighthouse in Nova Scotia. An observant visitor can see the foundation upon which the original stood.

Cape George Lighthosue

Low Point Lighthouse

The first Low Point Lighthouse was an octagonal wood tower, 21 meters (69ft) high. It had a round iron lantern and a 3rd order double bullseye lens manufactured in France. This lighthouse was replaced in 1936 by the current concrete tower, but the restoration reused the original lamp and lens. It has the only remaining circular lantern in Nova Scotia. It is a very photogenic tower with vibrant red and whites and form-contrast between the angular tower and rounded light housing.

Cape Forchu Lighthouse

Cape Forchu Lighthouse

Cape Forchu lighthouse at the entrance to Yarmouth harbour. Since 1839, ships have passed the light tower at Cape Forchu. For decades, it has been a red lantern with alternating red and white faces on the octagonal tower. This pattern contrast and interesting “apple core” style make this lighthouse a photography magnet. Situated on a rocky ocean shore anticipate dramatic photography regardless of the weather.

Cap D'Or Lighthouse

Cap D'Or Lighthouse

The Cape of Gold region, as it translates into English, is named for the particular hue of the incredible sunsets over the water. The Cap D’Or Lighthouse has sat on this cliff edge where the Bay of Fundy runs into the Minas Basin since 1922. Today’s lighthouse, built in 1965, is the only lighthouse facility in Nova Scotia with overnight accommodations.

Cape Auguet Lighthouse

Cap Auget Lighthouse

Cap Auget Lighthouse is a little known square lighthouse. As well, finding a beautiful beacon like this that is not crawling with tourists is a rare find indeed. As well, accessible beaches nearby make this one of the better locations for photographing the windswept beauty of the area. Highly recommended.

Lighthouse on Brier Island

Brier Island Lighthouse

Brier Island is the westernmost part of Nova Scotia and features a stunning lighthouse. The red and white stripes make this a very photogenic beacon. The original Brier Island Lighthouse was built in 1809, but in 1818 it was described as “so vilely constructed and ill lighted” that it was a hazard. By 1832 it was rebuilt. Today, a concrete tower stands in the original place, built in 1944.  Few lighthouses in the region are as picturesque as this one, and it is well worth the trip.

Arisaig Lighthouse

Arisaig Lighthouse

Arisaig Lighthouse is a wonderful photo tour pit stop along the North shore. A replica of the original, the spot features a Dockside Café. Dine on a selection of seafood specialties, including fishcakes and fish chowder. In July and August enjoy ice cream between exposures!

Cape George Lighthouse

Cape George Lighthouse

Cape George sits across a cliff top and is known for its fantastic view. On a clear day, you can see the shores of Cape Breton.  The local community maintains the lighthouse and surrounding park well. Be sure to pack a picnic lunch and enjoy this lighthouses beauty.

Pugwash Lighthouse

Pugwash Lighthouse

The lighthouse, built in 1962, has an enclosed upper portion and skeletal lower section. The original Pugwash Lighthouse sits on the land of a nearby farm.  The light station is one of the more unique beacons in the province and is perfect for photographs. Combining the green foliage with the rich orange earth of the region will only add to this lighthouses beauty.
