At left, the gravestone of Donald MacDonald. He emigrated to Cape Breton in the 1760's from Bohuntine, Scotland.
Donald fought alongside General Wolfe at Lousburg (1758) and Quebec (1759). He initially lived in Lower River Inhabitants, Cabe Breton after the war.
However, on the way to Quebec he noted the striking resemblance of this terrain to the hills of Scotland. He therefore acquired a land grant in what is now Mabou, Cape Breton.
On bitter winter days, my grandfather AJ MacDonald would say 'If it weren't for those hills we would all be living in the Carolinas right now...'
