Access Improvement To Wick Caravan Site
contractor A & W Sinclair of John O’Groats will be commencing work on
Monday on improvements to the Wick Caravan Site access, along the
riverside from Station Road. The access will be widened on the landward
side so that vehicles will be able to pass pedestrians in safety and will
not be so close to the steep drop into the river. This will enable large
motor caravans, which are too tall to pass beneath the railway bridge on
the main access from Thurso Road, to reach the site in safety. The works
have been designed by the Council’s TEC Services Wick office and are being
jointly funded by the Council and HIE Caithness and Sutherland. Area
Convenor David Flear and the three Wick councillors Bill Fernie, Katrina
MacNab and Graeme Smith are all pleased that their push to have this work
carried out in time for the new season has been successful.

Wick Caravan and Camping Site Reopened
The Wick Caravan and Camping site reopened under new management of Mr &
Mrs Miller following lots of work to get the site back in shape again
after more than year of being closed after Highland council decided not to
run it any longer.
Mr and Mrs Miller have worked hard to get the
site ready and although it has taken longer to get all the paperwork etc
completed and new electric stands in place. The toilet block and
showering facilities have been redecorated and painted outside and in.
Despite being closed for so long the site is
now ready to accept visitors and already many people have contacted the
site to book places. Wick Gala Week will see an influx of people to
the site for this popular week of festivities.
