Fergus Island

Fergus Island, originally uploaded by eracose.

Fergus Island is near the beginning of the Shoreline Heritage Walk. It is not far from the beginning of the trail. Fergus Island is named after Scottish merchant John Fergus who carried on a large supply business in 1812. The island viewed from French’s Cove depicts the image of a Newfoundland dog at rest with its paws stretched in front of its head.
