'The towns award-winning local museum - - - deserves all the praise heaped upon it. Tracking the rise and fall of the herring industry, it displays everything from fishing equipment to complete herring fishing boats. It's a fantastic museum - without doubt one of the best in the country - and is absolutely huge inside, crammed with memorabilia and extensive displays describing the days when Wick was the largest herring port in Europe (in the mid nineteenth century). The dedicated volunteers who run the place are desperate to save Wick's heritage from development and are constantly bringing in new exhibits and expanding the museum. Try to get one of them to show you around - their in-depth knowledge of the exhibits is riveting. The Johnston photographic collection is the museums star exhibit, From 1863-1977, three generations of Johnstons photographed everything around Wick, and the 70,000 photographs are an amazing portrait of the town's life. Prints of the early photographs are for sale.'
