Begin your adventure in Paisley by visiting the historic Fire Hall and Nature’s Millworks. Next, head north on Bruce Rd 3 to Southampton, where you’ll get to see 4 unique lighthouses. First stop, the Chantry Island Lighthouse.

Take a boat ride out to Chantry Island, about a mile away from the shoreline of the Saugeen River in Southampton. Once you have arrived, check out a light keeper’s home, hidden on the inside of the Chantry Island Lighthouse. Next, climb the 106 steps to the top of the lighthouse for an unforgettable view.

While on the island, take the opportunity to visit the Front Range Light and the Saugeen River Light. Afterwards, hop back on a boat and ride over to the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre, where the Stokes Bay Range Light currently sits.

Don’t miss out on the museum’s “Ghostly Guardians of the Bruce Coast” lighthouse exhibit while you’re there! Finally, head on over to Chantry View Dr. to check out the Chantry Island Viewing Platform.
