This is the largest protected grove of Old growth sugar maples on the island. It’s a loop trail- don’t stop at the Scottish Rock Hut- keep taking the short loop and you will be absolutely dazzled in this beautiful forest! I can’t even imagine how...More
This little trail is a nice little loop and features a replica of a shieling or Scottish crofter’s hut. A great spot for a little stroll through the trees and meadows and surrounded by the majestic hills and mountains of the Cabot Trail.
If you are travelling the Cabot Trail near Pleasant Bay be sure to visit the Lone Shieling site.
It includes a lovely trail around a bubbling stream. The trail is short so its good for kids... let them walk!
Its worth the stop!
A well-groomed loop trail with 2 stream crossovers takes about 15 minutes. Not sure of the purpose of the 'hut', could be used for backpackers overnight. Signs warn about use of this area of the park - restricted access area.
Many Scottish were expelled from the Isle of Skye. They left their country and ended up in Cape Breton.
Donald S. Macintosh gave 100 acres for a park in 1934. He owned 4000 acres of the hardwood forest. The biggest one in the Maritimes.
