Wick : Michelin's recommendations


The town lies on the banks of a river sharing the same name, which originates from the Norse term Vik, meaning a bay. Wick was the site of one of the first intensive fishing operations and in the early 19C it was the country's premier herring port. At the height of that activity, more than 1 000 boats operated from here and Pulteneytown on the southern shore. Recalling this richer past is today's small fishing fleet based in Wick harbour, which catches white-flesh fish.
