COVID 19

Due to the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic, it is with very heavy hearts that we are postponing the opening of the Wick Heritage Centre.

 Our board will continue to review the situation over the coming months in line with government advice. We will maintain a regular presence on our Facebook and Twitter pages in order that we can keep you up to date and engage in discussion about our many exhibits. You will be able to continue to enjoy the Johnston Collection, and listen to Wick Voices through this website.

Thank you for your patience and understanding, and please keep safe!




The Society

Since 1971, the Wick Society has striven to protect and promote Wick's history. Today the Wick Society has under its wing the Heritage Centre, Isabella Fortuna, Johnston Collection, and Wick Voices - a oral history project. Please come along and view our displays for an amazing look back into the past of this historic town.

Our Collection

The Wick Heritage Centre houses a number of furnished rooms portraying past times. Each room contains an array of authentic household furnishings, ranging from a traditional box bed to authentic Caithness chairs. Beyond the museum we have our garden and the Isabella Fortuna, both of which offer an incredible look back into the past.


A veritable Tardis! "A veritable tardis of a museum! What a smashing introduction to daily life in this wonderful herring capital of the world. If you haven't seen this museum, you ain't seen Scotland."
Johnston Collection

The Johnston Collection represents the work of three generations of Caithness photographers who captured images of life in and around the area between 1863 and 1975. They are now held in trust by the Wick Society.

Wick Voices

Wick Voices aims to record the history of Wick and its neighbouring villages straight from the mouths of those who have lived it. For the first time these recordings are available to the public exclusively through this website.
