Description

Whaligoe steps

Whaligoe (whale geo or inlet of whales) is a small port which was prospected by Thomas Telford in 1786 during his tour of the Northern Fishing Harbours for the British Fishing Society. His judgement of the place was that it was a 'terrible spot'. However undaunted Captain David Brodie expended the princely sum of £8 to cut the famous 330 steps. His confidence was rewarded in 1814 with the harbour supporting 14 herring boats near Wick, Scotland
