What's Happening at Wick Harbour

Pictures of activity around the harbour.

23 October 2000 - this morning a cargo of fertiliser was being landed.  The sea was calm.  The Pentland Venture ferry is laid up for the winter in Wick harbour - it normally runs from John O'Goats to Orkney in the summer months till the end of September.  This is the short crossing.  the main car ferry runs from Scrabster all the year round.
