    Charles also has the one of the finest, wee seatrout rivers in the Highlands in his back garden. Worth a cast if you're ever up that way.

    Garbet Mor & Beg fishing well with grilse and decent sea trout coming off. Be quick though whilst the water is high in the lochs......... The narrows being best for the grilse

    Scourie lochs worth a cast at the moment if anyone heading in that direction. Permits "cheap as chips" from Scourie filling station (next to the Scourie Hotel).

    Sadly, I think earlier comments about the relationship between the Keoldale Stock people and the Durness fishing are absolutely right. I went for a "permit" -(actually just a recepit, no info about size limits, bag limits, methods...!!) and was directed to someone who was just getting into his breakfast for info. They're not anglers, know nothing about it and are simply taking all the money they can get. The Borralie boats are a disgrace. Save money and fish from the bank or save even more and head the 14 miles south to the Rhiconich Estate or Scourie Hotel hill lochs. A tenner a day could see you into a wild brownie of 8lbs or a sea trout with the odd chance of a salmon

    One can also buy permits for loch fishing from the Reay Forest Estate and do so really wild brown trout loch fishing. Loch Merkland is also worth a flick from the shore with permits available from Merkland estate. I have had a few fish in the 5lb range around the burn mouth and you can fish on Sunday too......
