Barn on Hill, Highland Village, Nova Scotia

Here is a barn at Baile nan Gàidheal (aka Highland Village) in Iona, Nova Scotia.  Like Sherbrooke Village, Highland Village is a living history museum.  The site celebrates the Gaelic experience in Nova Scotia from the mid 1700’s to the early 1900’s.  I have ancestors that immigrated from Nova Scotia to Boston, so visiting Highland Village was part of exploring my roots.

We stopped here after spending a few hours in Baddeck while driving back to Sydney.  While much smaller than Sherbrooke Village, Highland Village is well worth a few hours if you are visiting the area.
