Baile nan Gàidheal | Highland Village

Welcome to the Highland Village, a living history museum and cultural centre that celebrates the Gaelic experience in Nova Scotia.

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. Our apologies as our webcams are currently off-line. We hope to have them back soon.

Baile nan Gàidheal | Highland Village is now open for the 2018 season

We are open daily 10 am to 5 pm until Sunday, October 14.
