What to "See and Do" in the Wick area

Wick was once the busiest herring port in Europe and there are many places where you can find old photographs showing the herring industry at its height.

Wick has a half-day every Wednesday.

Wick Camping and Caravan Park
On the main Wick to Thurso Road, at the edge of Wick you will notice the sign to the Caravan and Camping Park.  This is a lovely site both in location and facilities!

Flower Gardens
Wick quite rightly takes great pride in its flower gardens.  Every year the theme is different and a lot of pleasure is generated by the colour and design.

Sinclair and Girnigoe Castle

Sinclair and Girnigoe Castle's are wonderful!  Picked out in pink stone they have to be seen.  Unfortunately they are in bad repair and although there are moves underway to do something about this, it is a slow job.  Be warned that the buildings can be dangerous and they are perched on steep cliffs.  Keep a tight reign on any children that you have with you - or even consider not taking them!
