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.
Today’s Wick is a combination of old and new, the harbour remaining active and the town centre retaining its traditional character. The Wick Heritage Centre, which tells the story of the town’s herring years, is visited by tourists every year, while the Pulteneytown Distillery is also a popular port of call.
