"FLYING VISIT - 2007" Pictou by Tricky_Dicky69

Pictou Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 36 photos

Worth a short visit.

We had visited Pictou briefly in 2005 as we drove through on our way to Cape Breton but decided to stay for a night this time round. The town is definitely worth a visit but only for a day or two. The boardwalk on the waterfront has a few attractions, shops etc.

The Braeside Inn

We had no accommodation booked in advance and decided to stay at The Braeside Inn as we had looked at the website before when we were doing our research for our first visit to NS. Nice hotel.

What's that smell?

Unfortunately there is a hulking great factory or industrial plant of some sort straight across the water from Pictou. The view is less than picturesque but the worst part is the nasty smell that envelopes Pictou when the wind is in the wrong direction.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Nice boardwalk.
  • Cons:The view and the smell !!
