Cape Breton Photo of the Week: Seal Island Bridge

Cape Breton Living Photo of the Week: Seal Island Bridge Kelly’s Mountain, Cape Breton Island

View of Seal Island Bridge from Kelly’s Mountain.

When traveling on Cape Breton Island, you don’t necessarily have to drive all around the Cabot Trail for amazing scenic views. If coming from Sydney on the Trans Canada Highway, you will cross the Seal Island Bridge, then soon make your way up Kelly’s Mountain. Once on top, from the Look-off you can see where you just traveled. The Seal Island Bridge is there, part of an awesome view of the Big Bras d’Or Channel. While you are here, you might want to take a panoramic shot too.

Continuing on the Trans Canada Hwy 105 and still on Kelly’s Mountain, there’s another stop you might want to get out and admire the view. St. Ann’s Look-off overlooks the whole bay with the Englishtown Ferry further down below on the right. That little stretch of land is where the ferry will take you to and connects to the east side of the Cabot Trail. Thank you Jamie Boulet for sharing these awesome photos!
