Clyde River is located in Queen’s
County in the central part of Prince Edward Island and just 15 minutes
away from the Charlottetown. The original community name was Dog River
(Changed to Clyde River somewhere around 1864). It was named after the
River Clyde in Scotland. Heritage is predominantly Scottish and English.
A popular portage area for early Native settlers, Clyde River is cosily nestled into the banks of the West River along P.E.I's Southern Shore. Offering numerous delightful scenic viewpoints, Clyde River is also home to one of the Island's most beautiful and popular golf courses.
The St. Catherine's Bridge in neighbouring Dunedin is a perfect location for anglers wishing to hook into trophy sea-run Brook Trout which run through the West River system throughout the spring and summer months. Called Oonigunsuk by Natives, which means "portage place", Clyde River's natural beauty personifies the quaint rural charm of days gone by.
