The Norseman Hotel is in the small picturesque and historically rich town of Wick. Its history stretches back at least to the time of the Vikings, when it was called “Vik”, the Norse word for bay. Wick is famous for its fishing industry, having had the biggest herring port in all of Europe in the 19th century. While nowadays the harbour is used more for commercial trade than fish and has turned into a popular destination for yachts in the summer, you can still relive its history in an enjoyable tour at the Wick Heritage Centre.
