Nestled in the Northumberland Strait between Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island lies a hidden jewel called Pictou Island.
Originally settled in the early 1800s by Irish and Scottish immigrants who left a legacy of self-sufficiency, co-operation, and a keen sense of fun that current Islanders strive to uphold. The island today is home to a community of year-round and seasonal residents, and a haven for many cottagers and visitors.
This unique community possesses a strong sense of spirit. We value the pace of life and the tranquility that our island allows. We are committed to protecting and preserving the essence of this special place for the present and future generations.
We invite the curious and adventurous to explore and learn about our unique island lifestyle, amid our sandstone bluffs, red soil fields and beautiful sandy beaches.
