Staxigoe  Caithness


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Staxigoe like this:

Staxigoe, a fishing village in Wick parish, Caithness, 2¼ miles NE of Wick town. A place of some antiquity, it retains, in a state of tolerable preservation, two store houses which were used by the Earls of Caithness for the reception of grain, in the times when rents were paid in kind; and has a public school and a fairly good natural boat harbour.
