The Cabot Trail, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia

The Cabot Trail

“The tiny village of Meat Cove, at the very northeast tip of the island.”

Cape Bretoners are well aware of the land they live on… many will say it’s a part of their soul. But, many people from around the globe may not be quite as up to speed on just HOW gorgeous it is “up there.” Cape Breton Island really is one of the most spectacular places in all of Canada. There is a road (tourist destination) called the Cabot Trail that goes all around the upper part of the island. This is something that you simply must see before you check out.

When I moved to Nova Scotia back in 2014, one of my first “trips” was to Cape Breton Island. I looked at a couple of properties there and almost bought one of them. And, there is no way in hell that I would not drive the Cabot Trail while I was there. I only had one day, and to do it properly, you really should invest 3 or 4 days. That way you can get out and do some hiking, some fishing and a whole pile of other rugged things along your journey. Most importantly – bring a camera!
