The siting on the hill of these two range lights demonstrate how range lights were used by mariners to steer safely into the Margaree Harbour. In the daytime the mariners steer their boats in a direction to line up the red stripes on the range lights; at night they steer their boats so that one light is directly above the other. Beautiful area beach and many lovely photos to take.
