South Uist Fishing

Some of the finest wild brown trout, sea trout and salmon fishing is on the doorstep. The burns and lochs are not stocked and the lack of fish farms in the western watershed of the islands has kept the gene pool pure.

Fishery manager John Steele co-ordinates the fishing of the machair lochs and allocation of boats, whilst reservations and requests for ghillies are made through contacting Sheena at our main office.

Lochs are allocated on a rota basis to give anglers a chance to sample the variety of lochs in the system.

The Open Seasons are as follows:

Brown trout 15th March – 30th September (inclusive)
Sea trout/salmon 1st July – 31st October (inclusive)

After the challenge of a day fishing the outstanding Machair lochs of South Uist I can’t imagine a better place to relax than Grogarry Lodge.  Good company, it’s lovely food, and the cheerful encouragement of Bella and the team, make it a very special place.
