We offer chalets and log cabins with King or Queen beds, sofabeds, 4-pc bath, Wi-Fi, living room, microwave. 

We also have a fabulous restaurant on site that features some of the best seafood and homemade pies in Cape Breton. A continental buffet breakfast is included with your stay, and barbecues are available for your use. In addition to our pristine beach, we have a heated outdoor swimming pool and a wedding/concert hall perfect for music, ceilidhs, and community events.  

Friendly staff, comfortable cabins and a stunning location – the Markland Coastal Beach Cottages is perfect for families, reunions, or romantic getaways. Located in the picturesque fishing village of Dingwall, the Markland is just minutes away from the world-reknowned Cabot Trail and a great base to explore other local activities such as whalewatching, kayaking, and golf.
