Wick Marina

Around Caithness there are many historical places you can visit while based in Wick for a holiday and is probably one of the least visited areas of Scotland, other than John O'Groats of course. If you enjoy fishing then you will enjoy the range of fresh water lochs full of wild brown trout and the salmon fishing in the local rivers including the Wick River and the River Thurso, along with others within a reasonable drive.
