In the Heart of Historic Pictou
Welcome to The Scotsman Inn built in 1865, situated in the heart of historic Pictou. This Pictou Historic building at the top of Pictou's main street gives little indication of the elegant Inn awaiting within, which combines the charm of a bed and breakfast with the privacy of an inn, all in a graceful setting and a short walk to the waterfront, museums, restaurants, shops and live musical performances.
Major features include a tranquil balcony at the rear, with plants and tables and chairs. All rooms feature cable television, ensuite bathroom, Free wifi, private parking and dry storage for bikes. A delicious continental breakfast is included, and can be taken in either the dining room or the outside deck.

Spend a Night not a Fortune
Our Libraries on both guest floors are filled with a broad selection of books. Take one or leave one.
The dining rooms are perfect for either quietly reading the morning newspaper or joining in wide-ranging discussions. The included continental breakfast is comprised of various cereals and breads, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, juice, tea, coffee, jams, and more.
The deck is a wonderful outside space, providing a serene haven from the heat of the town. It is populated with large plants, providing both privacy and fresh air - lovely for both socializing and recuperating from jaunts.
We also offers bicycle rentals to our guests.
A great stay! Thanks for the great dinner recommendations, conversation and life lessons! Cheers to a very dynamic couple!
