From Route 4 on the western shore of Bras d'Or Lake, turn north onto Pepperel Street in Saint Peters and then continue along the lake shore for 10.9 km (6.8 miles). (The road is also known as Bras d'Or Lakes Drive and then West Bay Highway.) Turn right onto Oldys Road and drive 1 km (0.6 miles), park, and then walk roughly 1 km over a hill to reach the lighthouse. In 2011, the trail was overgrown, and it was necessary to wade through water at the start of the trail.
The lighthouse is owned by the Canadian Coast Guard. Grounds open, tower closed.
