Whaligoe Again

Belated New Year Greetings. 

Appropriately this is where I was on New Year's Day

The Whaligoe Steps

Appropriate because there are 365 steps from the cliff top to the harbour below at Whaligoe - one for each day of the year.

The harbour below?  Well there used to be one back in the day when herring was king! You would have to be a brave soul to negotiate this harbour.

In case you are wondering the Whaligoe is on the road south from Wick in Caithness (Not so far from John O' Groats)


  1. It would maybe take me a year to get to the top!

  2. We have some similar scenery in Northern Ireland; superb walks and just gorgeous!
