If you've ever seen a post card of Nova Scotia, it likely featured either a lobster trap or the lighthouse at Peggy's Cove. Boasting the most lighthouses in Canada, for centuries more than 160 of these massive beacons have guided ships home from the Atlantic to East Coast shores. Now some have been converted to museums, while others remain fully functional!
We put together a collection of pictures featuring some of the most beautiful lighthouses Nova Scotia has to offer - drive the Lighthouse Route and beyond to visit them all!
