Alexander Graham Bell once stated, I have travelled the globe. I have seen the Canadian and American Rockies, the Andes and the Alps and the highlands of Scotland, but for simply beauty, Cape Breton outrivals them all. A sentiment also expressed by his great grandson, Gilbert Grosvenor reflection on Maskills: That harbour is probably my favourite harbour on the entire planet, and I've cruised a lot of them, he said. It is the most emotional piece of real estate that I know of. part of 1000's of years of serenity, safety, and sustenance for folk who found themselves in this sheltered oasis. Grosvenor has likened it to a Cathedral and it is obvious that those who interact with this environment practice environmental stewardship. It is hard to convey in words how this landscape evokes a deep and immediate emotional connection. It cannot be denied that Maskills Harbour is special and I would dare to say, sacred. This is an overused word in real estate but I promise you this is a rare opportunity to become the new owners of this acreage on the Harbour. First time offered for sale since the original land grant to the MacLean's, hailing from Scotland in the early 1800's; generations of Lighthouse Keepers at Gillis Point which is now out of operation and an historic site.
