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

From the moment we arrived I felt happy. Linda and Neale made us feel at home and comfortable. They made us a tea on our arrival and we sat and chatted. The house is lovely. The rooms were very comfortable and stocked with tea and fresh milk. Breakfast was delicious. Fresh fruit, bread, homemade cakes, jam and a full breakfast for those who desired it. I am thinking about our next visit already
