Welcome to the Highland Village, a living history museum and cultural centre that celebrates the Gaelic experience in Nova Scotia.
New! Nova Scotia Webcams from the Malagawatch Church Steeple
The Highland Village is excited to join the Nova Scotia webcams family. We have two webcams broadcasting from the steeple of our Malagawatch Church on our site. The Iona camera looks over to the Barra Strait its bridges and east to the Boisdale Hills. The Highland Village camera captures our farm and the beautiful Bras d’Or Lake.
Cabar Féidh, pronounced capp-er fay, is the new Highland Village Blog. Our posts will feature Nova Scotia Gaels, elements of their rich culture legacy and the identity that defines our Eastern Nova Scotia communities, as well as, Highland Village news and programming information.
