Heather and Tim on Brier Island

Nice to meet you, and welcome to the Brier Island Guide website!

We’re Heather and Tim, the authors – and Nova Scotia enthusiasts – behind the Brier Island Guide & website.

Why did we create this website?

We live on Nova Scotia’s South Shore and have been visiting Brier Island every summer for years. Though popular with Nova Scotians, Brier Island isn’t well-known outside the province. Mention Brier Island and we are often met with blank stares.

We decided that the best way to help people learn about visiting Brier Island, was to make a website. One that’s current, stylish, and packed with local knowledge.

And that’s exactly what we did. This website isn’t just basic travel information – it’s the showcase for a unique part of Nova Scotia. We poured our best photos (and a little heart & soul) into making Brier Island Guide the top resource for visitors to Brier Island.

Why did we make the guide?

Having a copy of the Brier Island Guide in hand while visiting Brier Island is like having a private tour guide.

It has all the useful information needed to enjoy the sights, mixed with histories, interesting facts, and lighthearted personality. We’ve made sure the guide is colourful, fun, and gives your visit that special touch.

That’s more than you’ll get from a tourist office. See what’s available by going here.
