Pigeon Island is a fun place to explore, with paths winding around the remains of barracks, batteries and garrisons whose partially intact stone buildings create a ghost-town effect. The grounds are well endowed with lofty trees, manicured lawns and fine coastal views. Near the gate is a kitchen dating from 1824 and further on are the main fortress and a small interpretative center . At the top of Fort Rodney Hill, you’ll find a small but well-preserved fortress , a few rusting cannons and cardiac-arresting views. For more views, continue north past the stone foundations of the ridge battery to the top of the 359ft Signal Peak , about a 20-minute walk.
