Pictou County is proud of its Scottish roots and traditions. Listen for the skirl of the pipes in the distance, haunting Gaelic verse, toe tapping fiddle tunes and uplifting Celtic rock rhythms. Watch for the swirl of the kilt, lilting Highland steps and spectacular Scottish pageantry. But remember our community is also rich in cultural diversity with strong Afro-Canadian, Acadian, English, Irish, Mi'kmaq, German and British cultures, all a part of our beginnings as well as integral to who and what we are today.
