GLEN BARD, Antigonish County

Nine miles west of Antigonish town.

In 1961 a cairn was erected here by the Antigonish Highland Society in
memory of the Bard John Maclean, one of the most famous Gaelic poets
who ever lived in Nova Scotia.  He was born in the Island of Tiree, Scotland,
and came with his family to this country in 1819, settling in the district.
