Thread: Hebridean holiday accommodation

    Hebridean holiday accommodation

    As the main 2014 holiday season is coming to an end I thought to post some photos taken during the season on the Dollag's Cottage web site. If you are looking for a "get away from it all" holiday for next year with access to exceptional fishing for salmon, sea trout and brown trout plus wonderful stalking then be sure to check out the cottage as an option.

    The cottage is ideally situated for a family holiday (beach within walking distance, coastal walk almost in back garden) or for a sporting one (good trout loch, plus several others, within walking distance) and is good quality and relatively inexpensive (several people, including visitors, have suggested that the price could do with increasing) but the downside for stalkers is that because it is on a working croft dogs and other pets are not allowed.

    Good luck - still not a lot of rain in the forecast though the rivers have come up a little bit but the Creed is still very low. I think a lot of fish came into the river but they aren't taking much. You can keep an eye on the Creed levels here:

    If you are going to be around for a few days then it might be worth taking a day or two with the Fideach Club in their Estuary fishing as you should have some very big tides that week. It has been hard getting fish to take down there but there are a lot of fish in the water and it can be exciting watching them come in along with the rising tide. Gress may also be worth a cast as lots of sea trout came in there on the big tide in September and the hour after high tide seemed best. Neither of those two require decent rain so they are always a good bet when conditions are so difficult.

    I know it is a pain but the croft is a livestock farm and so there is, as it is currently set up, no way to risk allowing strange dogs especially as there are also sheep on almost all of the neighbouring crofts. I wish there were a simple solution to this as it would be great to have dogs come and visit but at present it is not a sensible thing to do.

    There is lots of really amazing stalking available on Lewis and Harris. The island only has red deer but the locations tend to be spectacular with many famous deer forests, both present and past, on the island. Clearly prices are subject to change but have been around 150 for a day at hinds and 450 for a stag.

    Below are some photos taken while stalking in the area:

    Thanks for the info. The creed has been poor all season and last yera also, think I will try Fideach Club next year. Some strong gusts that made me wobble a few times.
