Nova Scotia Late Aug. are Reservations Necessary

With the fond memory of a bicycle trip around Nova Scotia taken a very long time ago still vivid, we are considering a leisurely car trip (of about two weeks) around the Island and back from NY. Back then I remember we rode until we were getting ready to stop and then looked for a place to stay for the night. I'm wondering if that would still be possible in late August or are reservations necessary? We like B&Bs but would be just as happy in a small motel or a nice inn.

I don't know if we would take the ferry from Portland to Yarmouth or from St. John's to Digby, but either way the current idea would be to travel the southern coast in NS and visit the many inlets and fishing villages (are they still active fishing villages?) If we found a place that caught our fancy we might stay a day or two and then continue until we made it to Cape Breton which we would likewise explore.

Other then a specially nice little village or two with a particularly pretty view and/or a good restaurant or nice place to stay on that southern easterly trek I won't ask for any other suggestions as our plans have not advanced any further than this.

Many thanks.
