It may sound strange at first, but many locals refer to northern Cape Breton, particularly northern Victoria County, as “down north”. The seemingly counter- intuitive term is a leftover from the days of sailing ships when vessels were carried north by the winds of the Gulf Stream. These days we travel mostly by road, and a trip down north will take you along the breathtakingly beautiful Cabot Trail. Whether on the clockwise route north from Chéticamp, or coming through the Ingonish area on the east side of the Island, you will be rewarded with magnificent views of the Cape Breton Highlands and the rocky shore below. Once you arrive at Aspy Bay, you’re in for a real treat of tunes and songs from genre-defying American fiddler Jeremy Kittel and mandolin ace Josh Pinkham, energetic tunes and songs from Orkney’s Saltfishforty, and centuries of hits by Cape Breton duo Donnie Campbell and Jinks O’Neill.
