Apr 20, 2012 | Where To Fish

The Outer Hebrides is a game angler’s dream location and one that will fill you with all the emotions and all the pleasures associated with this wonderful and rewarding sport. Whether you are a solitary angler, form part of a larger group or are simply looking for a tranquil family vacation, the Outer Hebrides has it all – namely, some of the best summer salmon and trout fishing in Europe amidst spectacular scenery.

Whether fishing for Arctic char, brown trout, sea trout or salmon – the king of fish – the Outer Hebrides offers some of the most varied and exciting freshwater fishing, from estuary fishing on beautiful golden sandy beaches to a wilderness experience in wild, unspoilt landscapes.

The Outer Hebrides is truly an experience not to be missed! To complement this, the islanders’ warm hospitality makes the Hebrides a game angler’s paradise! Read more
