the Beginning and End of Cape Breton's Cabot Trail
Baddeck has been described as the beginning – and the end – of Cape Breton Island's world-famous Cabot Trail. Nestled along the shore of the Bras d’Or Lake in Cape Breton, the town is a favourite stop for sailors and those looking for tranquil beauty in the heart of the island.
The most famous of Baddeck’s residents was Alexander Graham Bell, who built two homes on his estate he called “Beinn Bhreagh”, Scottish Gaelic for “Beautiful Mountain”. In addition to being credited as the inventor of the telephone, Bell worked on many other world achievements while in Baddeck, including a hydrofoil that set a long-lasting speed record for watercraft and the first manned flight of an airplane in the British Commonwealth.
Baddeck offers a number of restaurants and places to enjoy the local seafood and authentic Cape Breton cuisine, including lobster suppers, cafes and dining rooms.
