“Pretty but not much”

Castle Sinclair Girnigoe
Ranked #3 of 11 things to do in Wick
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 4, 2013

The Castle is interesting but not much to see. The signage is poor. I hope the caretakers read the reviews and put up better markers and information about the site. It is a pretty view and if you are visiting Wick do have a gander.

Girnigoe castle is a ruin that is currently being renovated. It's current inhabitants are sea birds - lots of them of various varieties.
There are good information boards to tell you about the castle history.
It's better than some of the castles I've paid to see.

Amazing. Want to come back when more restoration work completed. Superb position for watching seabirds and other wildlife.

It was characteristic and they have put a lot of effort into trying to save it from crumbling into the sea. The location is remote and lovely. Bit of a walk, but the views are spectacular of the castle, coast, and lighthouse.
