Are you looking for a roadtrip that combines unique landscapes with the discovery of local producers? Look no further, the panoramic sheds circuit in the Eastern Townships is for you!
The panoramic sheds circuit
The panoramic sheds circuit is located on the territory of Haut-Saint-François in the Eastern Townships and counts, for the moment, 9 panoramic sheds .
Stretching over 150 kilometers, it’s a great way to discover several municipalities including Cookshire-Eaton, Scotstown, Lingwick, Weedon and Ascott Corner.
What is a shed?
A shed is a small building that serves as a storage shed, much like a garden shed or a hangar. For this tour, the small buildings were inspired by those found in the past in the region, with a single-sided roof.
Although rudimentary, these buildings are now a little more comfortable and welcoming, allowing you to admire the landscape and learn more about the region.
Discovering the attractions and artisans of Haut-St-Francois
The sheds tour is also a good excuse to visit the Haut-St-Francois and discover local producers and artisans.
Bordered by Mount Megantic and Mount Stoke, both great for hiking, there are also covered bridges and pretty little villages, stores where you can buy local products or farms where you can pick your own fruits and vegetables.
For example, in Dudswell, you can stop by Criadorable Farm to see the alpacas and purchase alpaca wool products.
If you are passing through Lingwick, don’t miss a stop to see the McVetty-McKenzie covered bridge, the longest in the Eastern Townships.
And to end the visit, you can also stop for a drink at the 11 Comtés Brewery in Cookshire-Eaton.
