| Caithness, Sutherland|
and Easter Ross
Staxigoe is a former fishing village, located two miles east of Wick on the north-eastern coast of Caithness. Its name derives from Norse words meaning "Inlet of the stack". The word "Geo" for an inlet is in common use in Shetland, though found on the coast of Caithness also.
Staxigoe was once the largest herring salting station in Europe, but its fishing industry went into decline with the construction of a larger port in central Wick.
