Cape Breton Island overview

What do you bald eagles, migrating whales, coal mining and Alexander Graham Bell have in common? (Besides that your grandfather can probably spout factoids about all of them.) Cape Breton, that's what. With learning opportunities at every turn, the island is an eclectic blend of rich histories. Hear Celtic music in the pubs of the Ceilidh Trail, get a taste of 18th-century military life at Fortess Louisbourg and see what life was like for early Scottish immigrants at the Highland Village Museum in Iona.
