The Headland

Across the river, the rocky forested promontory known as The Headland is the location of a famous lighthouse and The Dacha, a vacation home for the rich.

The Headland is the spur of land that forms the east bank of The River Dortin where it leaves The Big Lake. This is a rocky promontory, beginning with rolling, grassy hills south of Orchard Hill and rising to high cliffs directly across from the city itself. An ancient Morgan lighthouse is perched atop the cliffs, one of two that still operate. Beneath it lies a Morgan-built vacation dacha. The cliffs are best known in the city for the troops of baboons who have colonized their sheer faces.

There are stone paths carved into the cliffs by which one can reach The Dacha, but there is no other way up or down without ropes and gear. A ferry landing is at the bottom of the steps, across The River Dortin from Morgan Ferry on the city side.
