This gorgeous view of the southwestern end of Whycocomagh Bay is from the Trans-Canada Highway (Highway 105) a little east of the 51 km marker (the distance markers are counted up from the Canso Causeway) and a bit east of Salt Mountain. The village itself does not appear here; it is to the right out of the scope of this photo, on the west side of Salt Mountain. Indian Island is at the far right and Skye Mountain rises behind it. The water that one sees beyond the island in the middle right of this photo is at the head of Whycocomagh Bay.
The Trans-Canada Highway is often a very busy road with lots of commercial traffic and traffic is often moving very fast (the speed limit is 100 km/h (60 mph) outside populated areas), so it is dangerous to drive slowly along the road soaking in the views. There are far too few look-offs on this road, especially given the marvellous views in both directions. A relatively safe approach is to park the car well off the road and to get out and stroll along the road’s edge at leisure. Surprisingly, few people do this, and just buzz past these scenes of great beauty. What busy lives we lead, even when on holiday!
