LOCAL SERVICES & AMENITIES

 

Archer’s Edge Luxury Campground is located just off Route 19 (The Ceilidh Trail) on the Shore Road in Judique.  Archer’s Edge Luxury Campground is right in the middle of it all. Many of the activities and places to see are within an hour’s drive from your dome.  Try a square dance or take in a Ceilidh… check out a community festival in the summer to see the best we have to offer and help support local initiatives… Larger festivals like Kitchenfest and the Celtic Colours International Festival booked the summer season with 10 days of music, food, and cultural experiences across Cape Breton Island. There are also trails, churches, museums and galleries and interpretive centres that tell the story of who we are.  For a full list of local services and events, please visit Canada’s Musical Coast!

Cabot Links & Cabot Cliffs Golf Courses

Cabot Links opened in 2012 to unprecedented acclaim from media and golfers alike. Our country’s only true links course has quickly found itself amongst the top courses in the world and holds the #1 spot in Canada. Cabot Links offers some of the most staggeringly beautiful golf holes in Canada, like the 6th, with the picturesque fishing boats bobbing in the background, or the stretch of coastal holes that run along the beach, with the ocean so close that you can almost reach out and touch it.
