The Town of Pictou, located on the beautiful Northumberland Shore of Nova Scotia, Canada, is renowned as the "Birthplace of New Scotland" as it was here that the first wave of Scottish immigrants landed in 1773. Here you can explore the world class Hector Heritage Quay and board the full-sized Ship Hector replica.

Enjoy unique accommodations and exquisite cuisine. From a romantic getaway to an adventure excursion to magical family fun, Pictou County offers many hidden jewels.

Pictou County is proud of its Scottish roots and traditions. Listen for the skirl of the pipes in the distance, haunting Gaelic verse, toe tapping fiddle tunes and uplifting Celtic rock rhythms. Watch for the swirl of the kilt, lilting Highland steps and spectacular Scottish pageantry. But remember our community is also rich in cultural diversity with strong Afro-Canadian, Acadian, English, Irish, Mi'kmaq, German and British cultures, all a part of our beginnings as well as integral to who and what we are today.

While in Pictou, visit the fine white sand beaches at Waterside Provincial Park in Caribou Island, a short 10 minute drive from Pictou. We invite you to uncover the charm, grace and magic of our coastal region within minutes from your vacation rental accommodations, blessed with scenic beauty, genuine hospitality and an array of attractions and amenities. We hope that Pictou County will become your home away from home at one of our lodgings and that you will long to return again and again.
