DSC_4388 - Arisaig Light

Arisaig Light - In 1895 a lamp attached to a high pole was erected to navigate boats to and from the Arisaig Wharf; in 1898 a lighthouse was built. A white square wooden tower with four sloping sides, 32 feet high, showing a fixed red light, 40 feet above sea level; visible for seven miles. There were only three keepers of this light. In the late 1930's while lighting the lamp, the lamp caught fire destroying the lighthouse. The government did not replace the building. Arising, Nova Scotia, Canada
