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

Neale and Linda are fantastic. They are great hosts who took time to help me with lots of local info for my Scottish roadtrip. I decided to stay an extra night so I could explore the local area before moving on. The b&b is stunning and has a very homely feeling. I would definately stay again and have already recommended this place to my friends and family
