Whycocomagh Provincial Park Professional Review and Guide

"Meaning “Head of the Waters,” Whycocomagh is the Mi’kmaq word for the area surrounding Salt Mountain, and across the bay from the park lies the Mi’kmaq reserve of Whycocomagh 2. Settled in 1812 by Highland Scots, the new community of Whycocomagh retained its original name despite the colonists’ nostalgic fondness for reminders of their past, as Cape Breton place names such as Glencoe, Skir Dhu, and Loch Lomond suggest."
