When choosing to stay at the Norseman Hotel, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy the local area, including attractions such as, Wick Heritage Centre and The Old Pulteney Distillery were you can sample a wee dram. For the more spirited, take yourself on a day trip over to the Orkney Isles.
The Norseman Hotel is located in the small picturesque and historically rich town of Wick. Wick's history stretches back, at least, to the time of the Vikings, when it was called "Vik", the Norse word for bay. Wick is famous for its fishing industry, having had the biggest herring port in all of Europe in the 19th century. While nowadays the harbour is used more for commercial trade than fish, and has turned into a popular destination for yachts in the summer, you can still relive its history in an enjoyable tour at the Wick Heritage Centre.
If history is not what you are looking for then there are still a vast array of activities to look forward to during your stay. Here you can discover our three outstanding coasts and the vast open spaces of the Flow Country. Whether venturer or adventurer, Caithness offers you numerous unique leisure opportunities.
