Wild Fishing in the Stunning Outer Hebrides

An experience not to be missed

The chain of islands that form the Outer Hebrides are approximately 130 miles in length and lie just off the north-west coast of Scotland. The islands range from Lewis in the north, through to Barra in the south via Harris, North Uist, Benbecula and South Uist.

The Outer Hebrides is a game angler’s dream location. With over 2000 freshwater lochs, the chain of islands seems as much water as land – anglers are spoilt for choice.  Whether you are a solitary angler, form part of a larger group or are simply looking for a tranquil family holiday, the Outer Hebrides has it all – namely, some of the finest summer salmon, sea trout and brown trout fishing in Europe amidst spectacular scenery, from estuary fishing on beautiful golden sandy beaches to a wilderness experience in a wild and unspoilt landscape.

Grimersta Estate, 1888

UK Record

Amongst other things, the Outer Hebrides can boast a UK record which was set on the famous Grimersta Estate.  Back in the summer of 1888 Mr Naylor landed 54 salmon in one day (314lb) and also managed 15 sea trout (72lb). The following day, Mr. Naylor landed 45 salmon before giving up by lunch time. This is a feat that is never likely to be matched again.
