Your Gaelic adventure begins as you board your transportation for a scenic drive through the heart of Cape Breton's Bras d'Or Lakes region to the Highland Village, a living history museum and cultural center that celebrates the Gaelic experience in Nova Scotia. The 43-acre village is studded with 11 period buildings, representative of a Gaelic community from the late 1700s to the end of the 1800s. Visit the rare farm animals, including Soay sheep, a descendant of the earliest domesticated sheep in northern Europe, and long-haired Highland cattle. Throughout the village the costumed guides will showcase the art of weaving, quilting, and rug hooking. View authentic artifacts, discover Nova Scotia's rich Scottish Gaelic cultural history, and learn a little Gaelic from the friendly and knowledgeable staff. If you're interested in your own Celtic roots, ask about researching through the museum's genealogical resources. You'll return to the ship along the same scenic route.
