Hampden (Canton)

Like a giant horseshoe surrounding the village of Scotstown, Hampden Township resembles a true enclave. It is essentially the result of Scottish immigration in 1874, the majority coming from the Isle of Lewis in the Hebrides. Poor, Gaelic-speaking and Presbyterian, these early residents paid for their dreams with blood, sweat and tears. Today, sheltered in the hollow of Mount Megantic, they enjoy an exceptional view of the surrounding landscape. The municipality is close to the Samuel Brisson ecological reserve, where one can observe birds of several species, wild animals and dense Appalachian forests. A second entrance via Franceville Road provides access to Parc national du Mont-Mégantic with a campground providing services for motorized vehicles and wildness camping.
