Ciad Mile Failte! One Hundred Thousand Welcomes!
The NEW Scotland, since 1621...
For 400 years, Scots have lived on Canada’s east coast in Nova Scotia – New Scotland. Come experience the beauty and history of Canada’s ocean playground. Come celebrate with us our “Scottishness.”
Spend your days uncovering your roots and meeting new friends and family for the very first time. Explore the Highlands of Cape Breton, the luscious and fertile Annapolis Valley, the miles of beaches along the Sunrise Trail, or the lovely fishing communities of the South Shore.
Nova Scotia has always been a world-class travel destination, with “must-see” festivals and community events. We have hidden gems for history buffs. A geological marvel, Nova Scotia possesses many wonders of the natural world. We have the world’s largest scallop fleet and the world’s highest tides. There are always activities for rainy days, hotspots for traditional as well as modern music and theatre.
And yes, we still have lighthouses and lobster, plus the the finest wineries in all of North America.
Experience our culture, heritage, history, music and lifestyle… in the context of an international celebration of “All Things Scottish.” Come to Nova Scotia in 2011…
Where the Old World Meets the New!™
