Visit this college dedicated to preserving the Garlic language and culture. We had fun singing, watching Gaelic dancing and fiddling demonstrations from this part of Nova Scotia (New Scotland). On a beautiful campus, meet staff and students, many who descend from early Scottish settlers of the Cape Bretton region. Find out about your own clan designation and it's tartan. The school offers classes and workshops in bag piping, harp, fiddling, drumming, weaving, dance, and guitar as well as language training in Gaelic. You can even come for lunch M-F in the school cafeteria. A great morning activity in this beautiful area.

The Gaels are longtime residents of the island and this is a great place to see, hear and read about the history behind the clans and Lang cal people.

The Great Hall of the Clans Museum consist of almost entirely text exhibits, without anything that you could not read online. What is special is the demonstrations, which follow one-after-the-other (and apparently are given only once or maybe twice per day) so phone ahead to find out when the first one starts, and be there when it starts The "lunchtime ceilidhs" consist of a school cafeteria style meal (we had spaghetti [not particularly Scottish]--no other choices, and performances of fiddle and bagpipe music. Warning: The lunch is NOT anytime between the posted hours---if you arrive late, you'll all or most of the performances.

This Hall always fills with me with emotion, the Kilts all displayed, the clans represented. If you have any Scot in your background, this feels like home! There was a Piping Concert going on--even more authenticity.

The value of the Hall of the Clans is the demonstrations. We timed our visit to arrive for the great kilt demonstration, which was really fun. We didn't realize that we would then be treated to a gaellic lesson and a music demonstration! The demonstrations are arranged so you can go straight from one to the next. The instructors are very friendly and knowledgeable, and took time to talk to every person. It was even better than I expected.
