Northumberland Shore

This area is easily accessed from the Nova Scotia/New Brunswick border. Beginning at Amherst, follow the Sunrise Trail along the coast to Auld’s Cove, where the Canso Causeway leads to Cape Breton Island.

This region boasts rolling green farmlands, towering cliffs and sandy beaches with the warmest waters north of the Carolinas.

Scottish heritage and traditions are proudly celebrated through festivals, attractions and museums throughout this region. Enjoy the fresh seafood, blueberries and fine wines this region is famous for.
