The Whaligoe Steps

Posted on

Just 10 miles south of Wick on the A99 there is a hidden gem. It's so secret that the Scottish Tourist Board don't even provide a sign post, The Whaligoe Steps. 
Over 300 steps are carved into the cliff side taking you down to a small sheltered cove. Herring were landed here and carried in baskets up the steep incline. If you are doing the NC500 it's well worth breaking your journey. There is a cafe at the top to revive you after dragging yourself to the top

This is our second stay and it was perfect once again. Neale and Linda are wonderful hosts and the accommodation is lovely. Breakfast is delicious and plentiful and Linda is a great cook and baker. They certainly deserve 5/5
