Ullapool Fly Fishing Shore Excursions

If your voyage is along the west coast of Scotland and through the isles, then you have already chosen the 'road less travelled' (or should that be sea lane?). A fly fishing shore excursion while visiting Ullapool offers a kindred experience that will steep you in even more amazing scenery.

Our trout and salmon fishing excursions will suit novice or pro.

There are hundreds of trout lochs within an hour of Ullapool, where you can fish in near wilderness. We are likely to suggest fishing in the Assynt area; blessed by stunning landscapes and typically huge populations of hard fighting brown trout in the ½ -1 lb size range, with occasional bigger fish.

If you happen to be visiting in June or July, there are mayfly hatches on some lochs, that can trigger hectic action.

Spectacular landscapes and hungry wild trout will make a memorable day out for novice or experienced fly fishers.

Providing weather conditions are not extreme, excellent sport can be expected.

Salmon fishing on most West Coast salmon rivers is generally let with estate lodges on a weekly basis, but there are a few beats with limited day permit availability.

On these 'spate rivers', water levels rise quickly after rain, which triggers the salmon to 'run' into the river from the sea.

Time this right, and you can expect some heart-stopping sport. Stunning scenery, isolation and tranquility, expectation of a pull on the line...; it doesn't get much better.


Our Ullapool packages are designed for 1-2 anglers and will be provided by a professional fly fishing guide. Single anglers are welcome and can be accompanied by one non-fishing guest at no additional charge.

Our packages include pick-up from and return to your ship, tackle hire, fishing permits and refreshments.

All our excursions are subject to availability, and advance booking is essential. The earlier we know of your salmon fishing requirement, the more likely it is that we can fulfill it. For further information or to book your excursion, please send us an enquiry.
