Stone pig

Viewed times

It's claimed that in 1867 in two days 3,500 fisher lassies gutted a total of fifty million herring at Wick. Working with cold, wet fish really is hard labour. After a day standing gutting, many cold hands and feet would love to find this twelve inch stone hot water bottle (known as a pig) in their bed. On a chilly night, a wee warm piggy could really make your toes curl up with happiness.
