List Description

This list is a work in progress. Some of the high points in southern and western Nova Scotia are still uncertain, due to relatively flat terrain and lack of detailed topographic maps.


Thanks to Marc Moisan of Annapolis County, and Ken Heaton of Sydney, who helped track down the locations of some of these high points. Also, thanks to noted high-point researcher David Olson, who reviewed an early version of this list.
