Harbour

Today Wick Harbour bustles with industry and leisure. In the past, Wick’s key role in the herring fishing created magnificent harbour scenes of boats, and industry.

Wick Heritage Museum has re-created displays that depict a harbour scene, the story of the fishing; a kippering kiln; a cooperage, where the barrels were made; a lighthouse that showed fishermen the way; the tools and equipment required to rescue stranded seamen; Wick Radio, an essential communication facility and the model boats made by fishermen in their spare time
