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

Thanks Linda and Neale (and their lovely cat) for your hospitality, all you suggestions, advise and recommendations for dinner. Your house is really cosy and stylish and it was a pleasure to come back in the afternoon for a cup of tea together and a good chat in the warmth of the lounge. We hope to have the opportunity to come back soon.
