Scope and Content Plans and drawings of kippering-house on Albert Street, Pultneytown, Wick, Caithness The kippering-house on Albert Street in Wick is typical of its type. Though not well preserved, it does have a good example of a kipper-kiln. Originally the plant had four two-void kilns. After splitting and pickling, herrings were hooked onto a tenter-stick. This was then placed inside one of the voids above the kiln where the herrings were smoked to turn them into kippers. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
