Pilot House

Some years ago The Wick Society adopted an image of The Pilot House as its Logo. The building, overlooking the harbour, was funded by Sir A Bignold and gifted to the pilots of Wick. The pilots used it as their base and to store the equipment and flags that formed an important part of their trade.

It was used as a meeting place for fishermen and local people who met to share news of the fishing and to observe the boats arriving and leaving the harbour.

There are four wooden seats attached to the four outer walls to give shelter whatever weather prevailed. From the Pilot House one can get a panoramic view of the town and the harbour.

Local historical displays are arranged within the building by the founder and former Chairman of The Wick Society, Iain Sutherland.
