The Lingerbay Fishery system is less than 2 miles from Rodel set in the rugged landscape of the east coast of the Isle of Harris with fantastic views across the Minch to Skye. Lingerbay system consists of three freshwater lochs, Loch na Criadhach, Loch a’Choire and Loch Alatair, a sea loch, An Carrie and connecting rivers. Salmon, Sea Trout and quality Brown Trout fishing.

The quality of the natural brown trout on these Lochs is next to none with fish weighing up to three pounds quite common.
