The Local Area


You will find everything you need for an enjoyable stay close at hand, while staying in the Silver Darlings. There are local butchers, fishmongers and supermarkets to meet your requirements if using your self catering facilities.

If you want to treat yourself to some of the area’s finest dining, visit the No. 1 Bistro in Mackays Hotel. There are a variety of eateries in Wick, catering for all tastes, as well as numerous bars and pubs to spend an evening relaxing with a pint or a dram after a day’s exploring.

 Just a short walk from the Silver Darlings is the picturesque harbour where you can see visiting boats and yachts. Just across the road from the apartments is Wick Heritage Museum which is teeming with interesting information about the area, a labyrinth of rooms full of historical items.

And of course, a stone’s throw away from the apartments is the famous Ebenezer Place, the Shortest Street in the World, confirmed by the Guinness Book of Records in 2006 & ws published in the new 2008 version.

 For those who like a dram or two, we recommend you visit our local whisky producer, the Old Pulteney Distillery. They offer guided tours around the distillery and if you’re lucky, you might get a wee taste!

 For the golfers among you, we can offer you a free round of golf out at Keiss, our nine hole course, which is only a ten minute drive away. 

For walkers and cyclists there are numerous trails and sites of interest to be explored in the surrounding areas of Wick.
