We were staying at resort nearby. We walked over a few times, but seeing the night divers was really special.

This small automated lighthouse is a good place to get a view of Big Tub Harbour. There is very little parking. A stay of 5to 10 minutes is sufficient.

Tobermory provides beautiful scenery to visitors but has spoiled the area by having ugly parking signs everywhere. The municipality will hurt their local tourism by erecting these eyesores in a wonderful area.

Make sure to stop here on your visit to Tobermory! Definitely, a must-do when you're in Tobermory. One can just sit there and relax admiring the nature and the pristine clear waters
