Whaligoe Steps

Whaligoe Steps is a steep descent of over 300 stone steps down a cliff side, with sea views and a range of bird and plant life. The steps are found on the east coast of Scotland.

Dating from the eighteenth century, the steps were used by local women who carried baskets of fish from the boats at the foot of the steps to Wick, some 7 miles north.
