Thread: Hebridean fishing holiday

  1. #1

    Hebridean fishing holiday



    Dollag's Cottage, a newly refurbished croft house sleeping 6 in one double and two twin rooms, is available for holiday lets and is ideally located for those looking for a great fishing holiday.

    http://www.7south.co.uk/index.html

    The cottage is situated on the West Side of the Isle of Lewis and is literally surrounded by places to fish with 3 brown trout lochs within walking distance of the cottage, one of them even produces the occasional salmon and another produces some of the best brown trout fishing on the island.

    The visiting angler can chose to fish for brown trout, sea trout or salmon and can pick from lochs and rivers close to the road or head for areas so remote that a long walk is required and the fish may not have seen an angler in many years. There are so many options that the angler will have no difficulty getting fishing but might find it difficult to chose where to fish next!!

    Your host at Dollag's Cottage can point the visiting angler in the right direction providing information on good places to fish and also, where required, on how to get permits or permission. One visiting angler who stayed in Dollag's Cottage for a week last season fished for brown trout, salmon and sea trout and had a very successful week and all of her fishing was free. It is also possible to fish a lot of water on a daily or weekly permit system and access to some very exclusive water indeed is also often possible and may also be surprisingly affordable.

    Here are a few photos to give you some idea of the fishing available:

    Afloat on the famous Loch Voshimid at Amhuinnsuidhe:



    A remote trout loch requiring a long walk but with a reputation of holding some big fish:



    Making tea behind a rock while fishing for salmon:



    A small salmon from a river just a short distance from the cottage:



    A view across the landscape - there are sea trout and salmon in the two lochs in this photo:



    A Dollag's Cottage guest fishing on a remote hill loch - this angler was a little nervous about walking the moor alone but it was possible to arrange a day out with some company as it would be a shame to visit Lewis and not experience some wild fishing:



    This disused shieling makes the ideal spot to brew up some tea when trout fishing:

    Seeing as the weather is awful today I thought a few more photos might cheer some of us up:

    Planning the fishing for the afternoon with the maps spread out on the floor in the cottage:



    With Lewis fishing there are just so many lochs to chose from that it is much more difficult to decide which loch to fish than to get access to fishing:



    The walk to the loch often results in the angler bumping into some of the other moorland residents:



    Some lochs have a great view:



    And, of course, it is important to stop for lunch lest hunger should strike you down:



    Despite watching the deer, and deciding on a loch, and making tea, and eating lunch, and walking to the loch, and taking in the view some anglers also find that they manage the time to fit in a little actual fishing:



    Along with the fishing some guests have also headed for the hills for some stalking:



    And when the water is right your host at Dollag's Cottage has been known to head for the salmon river:
