St. Ann's Bay and Around

Continuing down the Cabot Trail down from Ingonish, you'll skirt St. Ann's Bay where communities are of the blink-and-you'll-miss-it variety. Indeed, if you didn't read their names on a map, you'd barely know they were communities at all. So, with the exception of the Gaelic College of Arts and Crafts (North America's only Gaelic college), there are few actual attractions around here. What you will find—during tourist season, at least—are fun outdoor opportunities and some of Atlantic Canada's most distinctive shops.
