CAPE BRETON ATTRACTIONS

As you travel the island, you  will see why.  From the ragged coastline of the Cabot Trail to the soft beauty of the Margarees, the land and seascapes are a delightful feast. Gaelic Sense Of Humor; is still very much alive, as you will see if you venture to a Ceilidh  The Ceilidh is a celebration of traditional Scottish culture and the fiddle is always very much a part of the merriment.  Tour some of Cape Breton's Museums and Historic Sites. There is very much to see and do on Cape Breton,  Nova Scotia's Masterpiece.
