The Glenora Inn and Distillery Resort is situated on a 200 acre site in Glenville, rich in the heritage of its Scottish culture and only a few miles from the ocean and near the highlands of Cape Breton Island. Cradled in the picturesque hills of the Mabou Highlands, our unsurpassed view is perfect for gourmet cuisine. Savour the freshest of Nova Scotia and international cuisine in our Pub and Dining Room, featured in ’Where to Eat in Canada’.

Constructed in traditional style with stone walls and post and beam framing, the Glenora Inn is unique and attractive with nine rooms of high standing. The picture window view from each room brings the quiet beauty of the Highlands into high focus, emphasizing the Inn’s charm and peaceful setting along MacLellan’s Brook. This quiet corner of Nova Scotia is home to birds, wildlife, fish and all the beauty that nature provides. For the hiker, the whiskey enthusiast and the honeymooner, Glenora is an ideal place to visit.

Attractions nearby include salmon and trout fishing; horse-back riding; golf; and picnic excursions on a fishing boat.

Visit our gift shop which features gift items produced by local craft specialists as well as a selection of imported Scottish treasure. Sample our Glenora Distillery product to take home as a distinctive souvenir of Nova Scotia.
