They call it Pilar Rock nowadays but when I grew up in Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada, it was called Old Scot Rock and I still prefer that name. It’s located on the western side of the island, a short way north from the village of Cheticamp, and accessed by a very short walk from the Cabot Trail. The Trail is one of the world’s great scenic drives, encircling the north end of the island and enclosing Cape Breton Highlands National Park. The water is the Gulf of St. Lawrence, which blends with the North Atlantic Ocean at the northern tip of the island.
