Iain Grant PEOPLE have been quick to snap up weighty chunks of Wick's heritage which have just gone up for sale.
On offer are pieces of the Black Stairs, which link the lower and upper parts of the royal burgh.
The Caithness stone staircase, the subject of a painting by British artist L.S. Lowry, has just been replaced.

But thanks to a brainwave by local councillor Bill Fernie, parts of the staircase are set to have a new lease of life as garden features.
