Paddy’s Head is a point of land at the entrance to Indian Harbour, an inlet of St. Margaret’s Bay, in Nova Scotia, Canada. The Bay in turn is a very large inlet of the Atlantic Ocean. The lighthouse is on the end of Paddy’s Head, warning fishermen of the rocky head itself and also the rocks and reefs strewn about the small harbour. All of this is the leftover footprint of the retreating glacier from the last Ice Age, about 10,000 years ago.

    Wonderful view, George! What a beautiful scene!

  • A really nice little place Mike. We had a cottage on the edge of the beach looking right at the lighthouse, stayed a few days and forgot the! It’s only about 10 minutes from Peggy’s Cove.

    Now there’s a lighthouse I don’t have a picture of. Yet! Excellent view, George.

    Hi David..this one is hard to see from the road, you have to get down to the shore. There’s several little cottage colonies along there and we stayed at one of them so had a perfect view. You could probably hike through the woods but the easiest way is to ask if you can go down and “inspect” the cottages and grab the shots while you’re doing! Nobody ever refuses, we’ve done it a few times, and that time we actually did rent the cottage..haha!
