Fishing on Skye

out and about

No trip to Skye would be complete without taking in the grandeur of the Cuillin. For those of ability to climb the summits of the Red and Black Cuillin the views west to the Outer Isles, south to Soay, Rhum Muck and as far as Mull, or east back to Fort William are unparalleled.

The Cuillins apart, there are an abundance of walks on Skye to suit any level of walker, with outstanding scenery and wildlife aplenty to see.

Wildlife abounds on Skye. Whether you wish to view the bird life from the majestic sea and golden eagles to divers, peregrines, the raven’s roost which is within a mile walk of your door, down to the songbirds, which inhabit the garden.
Red and Roe deer are plentiful.

On the Scorrybreac walk, which is adjacent to Coolin Lodge, you can see otters, eagles, grey and common seals, minke whales, pods of porpoises and dolphins.

All kinds of fishing to suit the novice or enthusiast is available on Skye, loch and river fishing as well as sea fishings are there to be enjoyed.

Golfing enthusiasts are welcome at the Isle of Skye Golf Course (nine-holes), a fantastic setting with the Red Cuillin behind you and the sound of Raasay separating you from the Island of the same name.

Outdoor activities abound with cycling, canoeing, windsurfing, horse riding, archery and to really let off steam why not try some paintball.

Boat trips are available from Portree Boat Trips

On those evenings when you may not feel like preparing your own meal, there are a variety of eating places, the closest the Cuillin Hills Hotel not being a two-minute walk away.
