Description
At the head of Chedabucto Bay, the Shiretown of Guysborough was founded in 1636 when French trader Nicholas Denys established a fishing station here. Guysborough is named in honor of Sir Guys Carleton, commander in chief of the British forces in North America and governor general of Canada during the 1780s.
Because of its seaside location, Guysborough provides many choices for water-based recreational activities; possibilities include boating and canoeing. A tourist complex and golf course overlook Mussel Cove and the harbor. Just southeast is a section of the Trans Canada Trail, which has been constructed on an abandoned railroad bed.
