From Route 4 in St. Peter's, look for a sign that says "Bras d'Or Lighthouse Campground." Turn right on this dirt road and follow to a parking area. The lighthouse can be seen after a hike over a hill. Bob Crawford reports, "It is well worth it to see the lighthouse and the panoramic view of the inlet -- very accessible and QUIET."
