My brother and I were very lucky to find The Scotsman Inn after changing our vacation travel plans. Sandy and Cathy were great hosts and gave us great advice on our travels and fixing the US healthcare system! We highly recommend staying there during the season, which is now coming to a close.

Thank you so much for those kind words and staying with us.
Cathy and I believe customer service is everything. And of course a clean room, comfy bed, and a nice breakfast!
Oh and interesting conversation over a wine in the evening or a coffee in the morning.

We got there a bit late after a long drive. Sandy greated us and made a few calls to see what was open to have dinner. The building is amazing, well located and Pictou is a charming village. We had to visit Grohmann knifes to find a half prices factory second knife. The little museum with a reproduction of the hector was really interesting also.

The Scotsman Inn is new renovated with very nice owners. They have good recommondations for Food places, further travel stops. I would come again for sure !!!!
The town was quiet at that time (October) but we found the museum of "Hector" very interesting. And there is the best bakery of shortbread all over Canada.

My wife and I were coming to Pictou for one night and decided to book in at the Scotsman for the night. Wonderful experience with the owners being gracious and extremely outgoing hosts and the room and amenities absolutely first rate. The property from top to bottom was impeccably clean and our experience overall was awesome. I would highly recommend this property as not only an interesting experience but very comfortable. Thanks Sandy and Cathy.
