One of the most iconic family-run hotels in the far north Scottish Highlands has announced plans to stage its first talent showcase event on the world’s shortest street in Wick, Caithness.
Between 12pm and 2pm on Sunday 20th August, people from across the region and beyond are expected to gather for the inaugural event at Mackays Hotel on Ebenezer Place, which is officially the world’s shortest street at just six feet, nine inches long.
Pipers, violinists, highland dancers and majorette dancers will be amongst the local talent lining up to take part in the showcase event on the tiny street, which is located by the river Wick and Wick harbour.
Visitors will also get the chance to meet a special collection of creatures from North Coast Animal Farm Time in Lybster.
The ‘Talent on the Shortest Street’ showcase event is being hosted by Murray and Ellie Lamont, the current owners of Mackays, an award-winning hotel on the world-famous North Coast 500.
Murray Lamont, current owner of Mackays Hotel, said:
“Mackays Hotel is an integral part of local community life here in Caithness and is located on the world’s shortest street, so we’re super excited to be hosting our first local community talent showcase event on 20thAugust.
“We’re expecting hundreds of people from Wick and across the region to gather on Ebenezer place, showcase their talents and show everyone what Caithness has to offer.
“We will be serving lunches on the day and have entertainment covered for the afternoon, so all we need now is for the weather to be on our side.
“We also hope that our inaugural ‘Talent on the Shortest Street’ event will be the first of many to come.”
