This old market town lies on the border between the Ottawa Valley and Ontario Highlands.   While it does not possess many listed attractions, the town itself is so pretty that it is worth a drive from Ottawa or a stop if driving north from Ontario via route 7.

 The commercial area contains many beautiful stone buildings dating from the 1840's - 1860's, built in a style reflecting its Scots heritage.  The city halls is also very attractive.  There are a lot of boutiques and shops, and a good selection of restaurants.  The Tay river and canal run picturesquely through the town.
