Gillisdale

 

Margaree Hills: photo by Stacey MacLeanLocated near the Margaree Valley in Inverness County, Gillisdale officially became a provincially recognised community when Inverness County was established. Its name reflects the great number of Gillis families who settled there upon emigrating from Morar, Scotland, in the early 1800s.
