Welcome to the North-West Highlands of Scotland; a rich and diverse wild land of mountains, rivers, burns and lochs. Home to the arctic char, sea trout, elusive Atlantic salmon and jewel-like wild brown trout.

This remarkable corner of the Highland landscape, dominated by the hills of Coigach and Assynt offers some exceptional fishing in iconic locations.

Perfectly positioned in Elphin, a small village on the A835 between Ullapool, Lochinver and Achiltibuie. With the renowned lochs of Cam, Veyatie and Urigill on the doorstep, access to great fishing in this area couldn’t be easier.

There are hundreds of lochs in Coigach and Assynt. They are teeming, fertile environments with a huge variety of plants and wildlife, dramatic vistas and rich geology.

The wild brown trout you can expect to catch within these waters are spirited and beautiful fish. There are ferrox monsters lurking in many of the lochs. However, ½ to ¾ of a lb is the average size for this area.

Your experience can be as adventurous or sedate as you’d like to make it. However, for a little effort there can be rewards. The deeper you venture the more wildlife you're likely to encounter, and some of the more remote lochs and burns hold better specimens simply because they are fished so infrequently.

There are a number of fabulous west coast spate rivers within touching distance. These are exciting stretches of water when the conditions are right. With salmon and sea trout running throughout the season that elusive bar of silver is within reach.
