Wick is a Royal Burgh town and port in the north-eastern Highlands of Scotland over-looking the North Sea with the River Wick dividing Wick and Pulteneytown. Wick was given Royal Burgh Status in 1589. A famous resident was Robert Louis Stevenson, who stayed here for part of his childhood. Wick is in the Guinness Book of Records for having the smallest street in the world; Ebenezer Place dates from 1883 measuring 6ft 9. Wick is an ancient Viking settlement; named from the Norse ‘Vik’ meaning ‘Bay’, although there is evidence of earlier Neolithic/Bronze-age inhabitants with Chambered Cairns, burial grounds and ‘The Hill of Many Stanes’ dating back to c1900BC. The town has a Tourist Information Centre, railway station, a busy shopping-centre, a variety of hotels, guest houses and places to eat. Attractions include the harbour, Heritage Centre and the Old Pulteney distillery with visitor centre, established in 1826 producing a single-malt whiskey. Historic buildings include the ruins of the Norse Castle of Old Wick (c1100s) known as ‘The Old Man of Wick’. North of Wick on the cliff-edge of Noss Head is the ancient ruined Castles of Sinclair and Girigoe. Nearby is the village of John O Groats well-known as the staring point for the long-distance footpath to Lands End, also operating a ferry service across to Orkney
