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

We had a fabulous stay The Old Manse, the place itself is lovely and very clean, with great attention to detail and beautiful gardens. Absolutely loved the decor and the room we stayed in was so spacious. The breakfast was amazing with a wide variety and not to mention the delicious cakes. Neale & Linda were great hosts offering advice on places to visit even down to coffee shops along the way, which we wouldn't have found on our own! They even gave us some cake to takeaway with us on our journey, which was very thoughtful. We would highly recommend The Old Manse and would definitely stay there again. A delightful experience with a personal touch
