From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Amberley, Ontario, Canada is located at the junction of Ontario Highway 21 and Huron/Bruce County Road 86 (formerly Ontario Highway 86 in Huron County, Ontario, Canada.

Amberley consists of a few homes and a general store.

The general store offers fuel (gasoline, diesel and propane), limited vehicle service (no garage, towing available), movie rentals, food, as well as beer, wine and spirits. (It is now a Beer Store and LCBO outlet). It mainly serves the local cottage industry and year-round rural residents.

There are limited seasonal rental accommodations nearby (make arrangements well ahead of time), although several towns with hotels/motels are within easy reach. Travellers should be aware that there is a significant amount of local horse-drawn and farm-related traffic sharing the roads in these areas and that care is needed when driving.

Goderich, Ontario, the seat of the Huron County government is 34 km South of Amberley. Kincardine, Ontario, is 19 km North on Highway 21, and Lucknow, Ontario, is 19 km East of Amberley on Highway 86. All of these locations offer a host of services and accommodations. Because the sun sets over Lake Huron to the West, Amberley is part of what is promoted as 'Ontario's West Coast'.

Amberley is also very close to Point Clark, Ontario, where one of 6 'Imperial Lighthouses' were built along the shores of Lake Huron to aid navigation in earlier days. Point Clark Lighthouse still stands to this day, and tours are available during the summertime. There is a public beach, boat launch, public washrooms and ample boat trailer parking at Point Clark.
