town. The town straddles the River Wick and extends along both sides
of Wick Bay. According to the General Register Office for Scotland,
Wick Locality had a population of 7,333 at the time of the 2001

the British Fisheries Society during the 19th century, was
officially merged into the burgh in 1902.

Groats with southern Britain. The Far North railway line links Wick
railway station with southern Scotland and with Thurso, the other
burgh of Caithness. Wick Airport is on Wick's northern outskirts.
The airport has two usable runways. A third is derelict.
