Bealach Brèagha Trail
The route begins in Inverness on the 50-km long wilderness trail known as the Bealach Brèagha Lake Ainslie Trail. “Bealach Brèagha” is a Gaelic translation of beautiful mountain pass, re ecting not only the Scottish Gaelic culture and heritage of the area, but attesting to the route’s mountainous passage overlooking Lake Ainslie, Nova Scotia’s largest natural freshwater lake. Passing close to MacDonald House you can access the trail by a path through our woods. Signage is available to show where you are on the trail map. MacDonald House also offers parking for trail users during the summer months.
