Join in the celebration of our communities at our multitude of festivals, parades and community gatherings. Enjoy unique accommodations and exquisite cuisine. From a romantic getaway to an adventure excursion to magical family fun, Pictou County offers many hidden jewels.


Pictou County is proud of its Scottish roots and traditions. Listen for the skirl of the pipes in the distance, haunting Gaelic verse, toe tapping fiddle tunes and uplifting Celtic rock rhythms. Watch for the swirl of the kilt, lilting Highland steps and spectacular Scottish pageantry. But remember our community is also rich in cultural diversity with strong Afro-Canadian, Acadian, English, Irish, Mi'kmaq, German and British cultures, all a part of our beginnings as well as integral to who and what we are today.

The Pictou County Tourist Association extends a warm welcome to our community of communities. We invite you to uncover the charm, grace and magic of our coastal region, blessed with scenic beauty, genuine hospitality and an array of attractions and amenities. We hope that Pictou County will become your home away from home and that you will long to return again and again.

Feel the seaside breezes embrace you and savour the ocean air. Experience and enjoy our Highland hospitality - Pictou County style."
