McDougall Cottage is an 1858 granite and limestone labourer's cottage located in downtown Cambridge in the historic factory district. The cottage serves as an interpretation centre, hosting a variety of special events that celebrate the area's Scottish heritage.

McDougall Cottage was home for more than a century to two families of hardworking Scots, the McDougalls and the Bairds. The historic cottage features beautiful pocket-sized gardens and the most spectacular hand-painted friezes and trompe l’oeil ceilings Ontario has to offer.
