Across the Narrows from Signal Hill, and dwarfed by its massive cliffs, are the remains of centuries-old Fort Amherst. You can almost touch the icebergs and whales from here, and the views along the rugged coast are incredible. You'll discover remnants of WWII gun batteries and a lighthouse (1810), the first in Newfoundland.
