New opportunity in Wick to capitalise on Highland tourism boom

The Press and Journal – Ross Hempseed

The Highlands and Islands have experienced a “tourism boom” throughout the pandemic as restrictions on international travel prevented people from going abroad

Therefore, many families looking to escape from their homes and lockdown have come to the north for some respite. The Highlands boasts some of the most outstanding natural landscapes in the UK and is home to some of the best destinations for winter sports, history buffs and nature enthusiasts.

Wick Caravan Site is also conveniently located along the route of the popular NC500,which attracts many tourists to the area as they attempt to navigate around the Highlands.

To capitalise on this tourism boom, Highland Council is looking for a new operator of the Wick Caravan Park. Tricia Miller, who has operated the site for the last 15 years, has decided to retire after a long shift.
