  • This acreage features a lovely private beach on Bras d'Or Lake with 764 feet (232 meters) of private shorefront.

  • This is the westerly view out to Bras d'Or Lake towards the tip of Boularderie Island and the Village of Baddeck. You'll have beautiful sunsets from your land.

  • Here is the view out to Bras d'Or Lake from the property. The shore is a wide small rock / pebble beach. Bras d'Or Lake is Canada's largest inland sea with three passages to the Atlantic Ocean.

  • Wide beach and entrance into the small protected estuary that makes up a part of this property. The environment supports a wide variety of wildlife, both marine and land.

    • An open area within the 5.2 acre lakeside parcel of land on the northerly side of the main road. A good portion of the lower parcel is wet lands.

    • This picture was taken within the 114+/- acre hillside parcel of land on the southerly side of the main road.

    • The 114+/- acres has a mix of beautiful mature harwood trees and growing stands of harwood and evergreen trees.

    • Bird's nest found hidden amongst a small field of maple seedlings.

    • In this picture we are looking along one of the well-marked property boundaries. The elevation is sloping from lakeside to the top of the Boisdale Hills. A small clearing for your house, cottage or trailer would create the most beautiful lake views.

    • In this air photo from lakeside you can see the layout of the land from the shore and up the Boisdale Hills. The land measures 745+/- feet (227+/- meters) wide by 6,732+/- feet (2,051 meters) long.

    • The view out over Bras d'Or Lake. The water has 60% the salinity of the ocean, yet it supports both salt water and fresh water species. For sailors, the Bras d'Or is a paradise - subtle tides, and hundreds of secluded coves and harbours to explore.

    • A wide public sandy beach at Iona. There is also a boat launch here. Iona is home to the Highland Village Museum celebrating Nova Scotia's incredible Scottish Gaelic culture.

    • Aerial photograph outlining the land boundaries.
