We followed the road into Dingwall looking and looking for the Markland, following Dingwall Road, wondering if we'd missed it. But there, where the road ended, was the Markland. And, a grand place it was. We entered the main building and were greeted by the aroma of good cooking and friendly, hospitable people. I enjoyed an especially good beet salad... More

We had one of the cottages away from the Ocean, so we didn't have a spectacular review. However the cottage was very clean with very comfortable beds. Very impressed. I Highly Recommend this place. But I think I would stay at the cottages that are close to the water next time. There is no TV here, but there is high... More

Way up north on Cape Breton island on the Cabot Trail you'll find this resort. There are several log cabin type rooms and some cottages with cooking facilities. Rooms were clean and functionable, comp wifi worked off and on, but seeing where you are that's pretty good. Comp continental breakfast was really nice, better than some, fresh warm muffins and...

What a spectacular location! We arrived in the afternoon and enjoyed a walk on the beach as well as relaxing on the porch of our log room prior to a delicious dinner. We had a great nights sleep after the snorer in the next room (walls are not thick) turned over! Breakfast was very good - we wish we had... More

VERY pleasantly surprised with this hidden gem. We stayed in a log room with a direct view of the beach and beautiful sunset/sunrise. All log rooms have the beach front view. The meals we had at the restaurant (Seafood Pasta and Striploin steak) were excellent. Will be back !!

The evening dinner in the dining room was Fantastic! Fresh caught local halibut cooked to perfection. The complimentary breakfast of freshly baked bread and pastries was more than we expected. We dug clams at the beach below and cooked them on the shore. We kayaked in Dingwall Harbour. The staff were wonderful.

On our 2 week trip through Gaspe', Cape Breton, and Desert Island Maine, our 3 night stay at The Markland was by far the best - the best scenery (magnificent), the best beach (with cliffs on all side) the best room (simple but very comfortable and with a great view - no TV), the best continental breakfast (homemade breads, cinnamon...

The Markland is a wonderful place to stay! Staff are so friendly and helpful. The cottages/rooms are beautiful. It was so clean and cozy. Beautiful views. Breakfast is included, it was just a breakfast buffet basically, nothing to write home about, but it was good, homemade and satisfying. You can also eat dinner there if you make a reservation, which... More
