fishing

There are many opportunities fishing nearby – both for salmon, brown trout and sea trout as well as many places for sea fishing. Fishing for wild Brown trout is available at the many Lochs around Lochalsh and for the beginner there are Lochs that are easily accessed. For the more experienced there are many Lochs with rugged walk-ins, allowing you to absorb the beauty of the area in its solitude.

For more details of all fishing available please use the contacts link and we will try to assist.

Here are just a few examples of the ones nearby.

River Carron
River Carron is a river in Wester Ross, in the Highlands of Scotland. The river rises in Ledgowan Forest. It gathers its head-streams through Carron Bog, then enters Loch Scaven and flows out from there.

Fly fishing is available on the River Carron

From Achnashellach the river meanders 19 kilometres (12 mi) southwest through the broad strath of Glen Carron and expands at one part into Loch Doule (or Doughaill). About 4 km (2 mi) further south-West, it enters the Inner Sound at the head of Loch Carron near Achintee.

The A890 and a branch of the Highland railway, which extends to Kyle of Lochalsh, runs along part of the river's southeast shore.

The stocking of the River Carron with juvenile Atlantic salmon has brought this fish back from the brink of local extinction. Having made a dramatic recovery, the salmon has contributed to an improvement in the biodiversity of the whole area with kingfishers now established locally, as well as increased numbers of ospreys during the summer months.

Ecology and Biodiversity
In recent years the river has been stocked by juvenile Atlantic salmon, and this far-sighted action has brought this fish back from the brink of local extinction. Having made a dramatic recovery, the salmon has contributed to an improvement in the biodiversity of the whole area with kingfishers now nesting by the river. In addition, the number of ospreys has increased significantly, and these can often be seen hunting for salmon.
