Wick is a town in northeast Scotland, bordering the Pentland Firth. A site of Pictish habitation, the Vikings later chose Wick for a settlement before it was absorbed into the Kingdom of Scotland. Wick later became a vital port for Scotland’s fishing industry.
Wick is an enterprising town situated around a sheltered inlet. Due to its economic and geographical importance, Wick is connected to the rest of Britain by road, rail and sea, as well as being the site of the British mainland’s most northerly airport. This transportation provides Wick with a steady flow of tourists who come for its golf, hill-walking, bird-watching and many other activities.
