Brechin is the hill on your right when you disembark from BC Ferries at Departure Bay. The neighbourhood includes some funky homes built to enjoy the amazing views of Departure Bay and Newcastle Island; decks are large, windows are tall, roads are steep, and there’s a sort of maritime feeling.
As you travel south this is a beautiful old part of town with stunningly maintained character homes, some with surprisingly large lots and ocean views. This area is along bus routes.
