It may be an effort to get to the islands, but it can be well worth it. Remoteness does have its advantages .. lochs and rivers are only lightly fished and you will probably have a whole system to yourself.


Don't expect huge fish, the rivers just are not big enough .. just lots of them when the runs are going through.
