About Pictou County

Situated on Nova Scotia’s Northumberland Shore, Pictou County is home to 46,000 people. While the region is popular among seasonal cottage owners, as it is the perfect location to enjoy long summer days in the warm waters of the Northumberland Strait, it is also seeing more development of permanent all season residences as the boomer generation retires.

Pictou County offer all the conveniences needed for a perfect summer. Golfers can choose from three 18 hole golf courses. Boaters have a full service marina less than a half hour away. Families enjoy spending time in the sand at the famous Melmerby Beach. The various waterways and inlets provide for plenty of recreational activities such as swimming, kayaking and canoeing, fishing, hiking, bird watching and beach walking, all within 5 minutes of your new oceanfront property.

Off season activities include cross country skiing, snowmobiling and ice fishing.

The surrounding area offers all the privacy you need to relax, but also offers a close knit community of people from all over North America. The community is friendly, with frequent barbecues, beach parties, and potluck dinners.
