Argyle Square, Wick

A view of Argyle Square in Wick. Before the turn of the 20th century this area was the centre of Pulteneytown, a burgh designed by Thomas Telford.

A Royal Burgh from 1589, the town of Wick has even more ancient origins, as shown by its name which comes from the Norse "Vic", the word for bay. It is situated on the north east coast of Scotland 19 miles south of John O'Groats.
