As the birthplace of New Scotland, Pictou County is where Nova Scotia’s Scottish roots are celebrated and preserved.
You’ll find everything from pubs and fish & chip diners, to tea rooms and fine dining restaurants in and around Pictou. Seafood fresh from the Northumberland Strait can be enjoyed throughout the year, especially mouth-watering lobster dishes.
Pictou was both a destination and the launching point for ships of all sizes through the ages. Today, the town continues to act as a launching point for private vessels, ranging from sailboats to kayaks. The town is also a great place to explore on foot, with the Trans Canada Trail connecting directly to the downtown, before taking walkers out along the harbourfront. Each summer since 1934, the town has celebrated its marine heritage with the Pictou Lobster Carnival. The three-day event features musical entertainment, parades, carnival rides and, of course, lobster!
