Piper's Glen is a ...

Piper's Glen is a small valley in the centre of the Margarees in Cape Breton. The dirt road from the highway is sometimes hazardous, but a beautiful scene of towering mountains meets the eye at every curve of the road, as it winds through the highlands. Suddenly the vista changes to green fields, cows grazing and a meandering river. Far off, the distant sound of a lone piper in the hills. Imagination, maybe the wind, could be, but who knows.
