Salmon and Sea Trout Fishing on Harris Scotland

O. S. Maps 13, 14

Harris has some superb salmon and sea trout fishing, the best of it let on a weekly basis with lodge accommodation on the Amhuinnsuidhe, Obbe and Borve Lodge estates. Fishing may occasionally be available to the casual visitor on these estates or at Laxadale or Finsbay.


Located at the village of Urgha, to the east of Tarbert, the two Laxadale Lochs offer fishing for a maximum of eight rods. There are three boats and two fishing huts, with disabled access. The five year average catch is around twenty salmon. Fish enter the lochs after rain. Salmon up to fifteen pounds and sea trout to four pounds can be expected along with numerous brown trout. The season runs from April 1st to October 15th, with daily and weekly fishing lets available through the head gillie

Finsbay, Flodabay and Stockinish

Located in south east Harris, the Finsbay fishing permit allows fishing in all lochs on the system, including Flodabay and Stockinish. The fishings comprise about 50 lochs on Finsbay, 35 on Flodabay and 17 on Stockinish with two separate tributaries to the sea. Some of the lochs are near the road, most can be reached within thirty minutes, and the most distant are within an hour's walk. There is a system of daily rotation. Brown trout fishing is available in March and April at a cost of £30 per week, with salmon and sea trout from May onwards.

The combined 5 year average catch for the "100 Lochs" comprising Finsbay, Flodabay and Stockinish is 5 salmon, 52 sea trout and 167 brown trout. Accommodation is available for a total of 18.

Harris Fishing Map


The maps on this website have been reproduced with the permission of Collins Bartholomew. Please note that these maps may date back several decades. Much of the human detail will have changed but the character of the rivers and lochs, and the trout and salmon in them, will be much the same as they have always been.

In addition to the information provided here, I would recommend that anyone planning a fishing or walking trip in Scotland should equip themselves with a compass and the appropriate Ordnance Survey map. The most useful of the O.S. maps for the fisherman is the Landranger series, scale 1:50,000. For each of the lochs and rivers listed here, I have given the relevant O.S. Map number.
