Cap Chat Lighthouse, Cap Chat, Quebec

The Cap Chat Lighthouse is located on a point of land to the West of the village of Cap Chat in the Gaspe Region of Quebec. It sits on a bluff overlooking the Saint Lawrence River. The lighthouse dates to 1909. The light is a 13 metre tall wooden tower with gallery. The light remains active and the site is privately maintained. Although it was deactivated in 2007 it was later relit. The grounds include a keeper's house and several other buildings. To get to the light you must travel to a parking area by a campsite/resort and it is a short walk to the site. In season there is a fee for accessing the area. Photos taken in September 2017.
