Welcome to Amherst Island
Amherst Island is located in Lake Ontario west of Kingston, Ontario, Canada. The island is part of Loyalist Township in Lennox and Addington County. Amherst Island is located about 3 kilometres (2 mi) offshore from the rest of Loyalist Township and access to the island is by way of the Frontenac II ferry from Millhaven.
The main population centre on the island is the village of Stella, which is the where the ferry lands on the island side. Harrowsmith Country Life declared the island’s local hamlet, Stella, as one of the “prettiest towns in Canada”.
