The town of Pictou has a lovely heritage area on the waterfront devoted to telling the story of Scottish immigration in the eighteenth century, includes a tall ship replica and museum.

We visited the Ship Hector and were treated to a personal tour of the upper and lower decks of the ship. Very interesting to get a perspective of what the immigrants lived through to get to a new land!

We arrived when the Heritage Centre was about to close, but were allowed to take a look at the Hector. The volunteer guides insisted on showing us everything, and made it come alive.
