Fishing

This area of Scotland is famous for high quality freshwater and saltwater fishing and offers a great variety of species to catch. Right on your doorstep, Loch shiel provides opportunities for decent wild Brownies, Salmon and Sea Trout that migrate up the River Shiel system into the Loch. Additionally if you don't mind a walk, there are a good number of Hill lochs, on various estates, also providing flyfishing sport for wild brownies. Sea fishing is also available locally, and offers multiple species, including Mackerel (off the rocks in the late summer), Spurdog, large Pollock, Codling and specimen Common Skate! should you wish to go after these monsters!
