Mouth of the Margaree River
Margaree River
Featured in McLeans Magazine as Paradise Found, located on the picturesque Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, seven small communities dot the valleys formed by the Margaree River as it winds from the Highlands and Lake Ainslie to the sandy shores of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The local culture is a blend of Scotish, Irish, French-Acadian and English.

The pristine setting is ideal for the outdoor enthusiast featuring mountain hiking trails. The Margaree River is famous for its salmon pools where you can test your skill at fly-fishing.

Visit the Margaree Fish Hatchery and use their underwater camera to check out the salmon and trout raised there.

Local artists and craftspeople offer quilts, unbelievable pottery, and wooden folk art. Enjoy quaint museums and fine dining.
