I only have one photo of this lighthouse from the Bell museum because I ran out of power on my phone. Rats! Can only say it's a typical lighthouse but so picturesque!!

This red and white lighthouse provides plenty of photographic opportunities. You can take views from the mainland, from the harbour and also close up on Kidson Island.

In all the years we have been coming here we have never seen the beach so unwelcoming. The grass has grown down almost to the waters edge the beach is covered in eel grass. The lifeguards in attendance were on their phones the entire time...More

This is an easily photographable lighthouse on the lake; we got photos with the sun going down, great ones with winds, and lots of angles. Pretty little lighthouse!

We were in Baddeck for a few days before learning that Kidston Island with its great lighthouse is where locals go swimming. Hop on the little ferry at Kidston Landing and head on over. This island is also great for birding. I saw woodpeckers, warblers,...More

Nice area with great photo opportunities, one of which is the Kidston Island Lighthouse. The whole area begs to be explored.

I had fun looking to take pictures of the Kidston Island Lighthouse, in different places, to see this lighthouse from different perspectives. The first time I saw it, was from a window from the Alexander Graham Bell Historic Site. I immediately was attracted to it....More

We could not visit the island but took some great pictures. Its a tiny but very cute lighthouse. Pier walk on the Baddeck side is very good.

We did not have time to visit the Kidston Island Lighthouse but we took some great photos of it from a distance. We will certainly stop and visit it on our next trip, which will be in the fall of 2017.

I am not sure if pets are allowed on the ferry. I tried looking on the internet but cannot find anything regarding the ferry, it's schedule nor its services. But I would think that pets would not be a problem.
