Celtic Shawls: Margaree Harbour

Margaree Harbour is nestled along the Cabot Trail, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia – one of the most beautiful trails in the world with its absolutely spectacular ocean vistas. Along the trail’s length are many small historic fishing communities that still today depend on the sea for their livelihood and celebrate their Celtic culture.  Imagine a fisherman’s wife in days gone by, standing on the rocks overlooking the ocean, wrapped in the warmth of a woollen shawl to keep out the cold winds as she watches for that first glimpse of the fishing boats returning to the safety of the harbour.
