    Location description

    Wick, was for nearly 500 years the administrative centre of Caithness. Wick lies on the east coast of northern Scotland (15 miles south of Duncansby Head and John o' Groats). Wick has its origin as a Viking settlement, its name coming from the Norse Vik meaning bay. It was the Viking's who first used the mouth of the River Wick where it flows into Wick Bay as a harbour for their long ships and trading vessels. Wick enjoyed its greatest prosperity in the 1800's when it developed as a thriving herring port, becoming the busiest in Europe.

    In Wick, many of its buildings show their Victorian origins. South of the town of Wick are the ruins of Old Wick Castle dating from the 1100's (the ruins of the castle are known affectionately as the Old Man of Wick'). Three miles to the north-east of Wick are the ruins of Sinclair castle and Girnigoe castle.

    Wicks town revolves around its harbour and its seafaring traditions. Sir John Sinclair of Ulbster built a quay at Wick in 1768 in order to promote the town as a centre of herring fishing. Progress was slow (in 1780 under 400 barrels of salted fish were caught and processed) but the British Fisheries Society stepped in and during the 1780's and within a decade 200 fishing boats were based in Wick and the annual catch rose to 13,000 barrels of salted herring. Harbour improvements by Thomas Telford followed in 1810 he also bridged the River Wick, improving connections between Wick on the north bank and Pulteneytown on the south bank. The boom years were between 1860-1890 when there were around 1000 fishing boats operating out of Wick Harbour, however, failure to take steps to conserve stocks meant that the herring was fished out by the early 1900's and in 1930 fewer than 30 fishing boats remained in Wick (the figure remains roughly the same today).

    Today, Wick's population is around 8,000 and its harbour remains both active and interesting, while the town centre has considerable character without being either fossilised or run down. In Pulteneytown there is the Wick Heritage Centre, giving summer visitors a feel for the town's herring years, there is also the Pulteney Distillery.

    Thurso's history echoes that of Wick and is located on the north coast of Caithness. Thurso's name also coming from the Norse, from Thorsa meaning Thor's River and in Viking times it was an important gateway to the mainland. The Vikings were well established here from as early as the 900's, using the river mouth as a port and fishing base. After the Viking were evicted from Caithness by the Scots in the early 1200's, Thurso continued to grow around its fishing and trade.

    Thurso's interesting old town (near to its harbour) contains the ruins of Old St Peter's Church which dates back to 1220 and the Thurso Heritage Museum which exhibits the intricately carved Pictish Skinnet Stone.

    Thurso is mainland Scotland's most northerly town and home to the country's most northerly railway station. Thurso has long been a gateway to Orkney (leaving from the harbour of Scrabster).

    John o' Groats is probably the most visited location of the area (starting point for the distance walk to Lands End). Two miles east from John o' Groats is the lighthouse and spectacular cliff scenery of Duncansby Head.

    Between John o' Groats and Thurso is Dunnet Head, the most northerly place on mainland Scotland.

    Close to the east coast of Wick are a series of attractive settlements and villages, including Latheron, Lybster, Dunbeath with its attractive harbour and castles i.e. Berriedale and Helmsdale. Inland from Helmsdale, the Helmsdale River flows down through Strath Kildonan, the focus of Scotland's very own gold rush in 1869 at Baile an Or (town of gold).
