Swallowtail Lighthouse, Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick

As you arrive on Grand Manan Island on the ferry from Black's Harbour on the New Brunswick mainland, you will pass the impressive Swallowtail lighthouse on the North Head bluff, just North of the village of Grand Manan on the island. This light was built in 1860 and the station consists of the 53 foot high wooden tower and a two storey keeper's quarters and a boathouse. The light remains active and has a fog signal which is often used for the frequent fogs that envelope the Bay of Fundy. The light station has become a tourist attraction for the village and tours up to the gallery are available.  Photos were taken in August 2014.
