We don’t see a lot of castles in southwestern Ontario so you need to check out the house that James Livingston, "The Flax and Linseed Oil King of Canada,” built outside of Baden. Castle Kilbride is a fascinating 1877 Victorian gem marking 25 years as a museum.
One of the coolest spots we’ve been to lately is the Fryfogel Tavern & Arboretum. Built in 1844-45, it is the last remaining of the many Canada Company taverns built along the Huron Tract. The arboretum is a garden of native plants and trees is a collection of what would have occupied the site in 1844.
You’ll need a top up after all that exploring. Scran & Dram Scottish Public House will fill that need with good Scottish eats. How about a Brie Burger, haggis with neeps and tatties, Scotch eggs, and craft beer! Scran & Dram is also known for rare drinks, fine single malts and live music.
