Once the major stop between Charlottetown and Summerside on P.E.I`s trans-provincial railway, Breadalbane is scenically nestled amongst the wooded hills and pastoral farmland of Central Queens County. The community was one of the first on P.E.I. to build and utilize a hydro-electric generating station and the Breadalbane Dam also provides anglers with the opportunity to fish for trophy Brook Trout.
A scenic nature trail which cuts deep into the wooded interior of the region enables visitors to better acquaint themselves with the wildlife that abounds throughout the unspoiled wilderness. As well, the Junction Road has been designated a National Scenic Heritage Road, highlighted by spectacular views of the Queens County landscape.
