Pictou Travel Guide

The Town of Pictou, located on the beautiful Northumberland Shore of Nova Scotia, Canada, is renowned as the "Birthplace of New Scotland". It was here that the first wave of Scottish immigrants landed in 1773 and here you can explore the world class Hector Heritage Quay and board the full-sized Ship Hector replica. Pictou is the best place to experience old-world charm and culture and present-day hospitality. Halifax is approximately 150 km from Pictou.

The Hector Heritage Quay is one of Nova Scotia's major cultural tourist attractions. Through the depiction of the story of Scottish migration to the New World, the Hector Heritage Quay introduces visitors to the history and culture of the area. A series of displays retell the story of the Ship Hector voyage in 1773. The centerpiece of the attraction is a full scale reproduction of the ship Hector. This three masted, fully rigged ship is found on Pictou's historic waterfront.

Another attraction is the Northumberland Fisheries Museum which prides itself on preserving the rich sea heritage and culture along the Northumberland Strait. This local attraction pays tribute to the life and times of all those involved, past and present, in the fishing industry in the region.
