A Review Of Our Stay At The Scotsman Inn Pictou Nova Scotia

Our first stop and overnight stay after visiting the picturesque Cabot Trail, was at 🏡 The Scotsman Inn – Pictou, Nova Scotia.

This Inn is a beautifully restored building built back in 1865, and is located right downtown in the quaint seaside Town of Pictou in the 🍁 Province of Nova Scotia – Canada.

Pictou is a lovely seaside community located on the beautiful Northumberland Shore of Nova Scotia. It is also known as the – “Birthplace of New Scotland.

It was here in Pictou, where the first Scottish immigrants landed back in 1773.

Scotsman Inn Brief History

Located right in town off the main street, it has a very interesting and storied history.

From originating as a – 🏠 family home and general store, it also housed the town 📚 library, various businesses and also ran as an apartment, in past years.

We had a wonderful stay and only wish we could have spent more time. Pictou is a perfect quaint seaside town to visit.

Whether a stop over while passing through like we did, or for a much longer stay to enjoy the many attractions the area has to offer, be sure to include Pictou in your travel plans.

It was perfect for us while traveling between the famous – Cabot Trail and Prince Edward Island.
