Scottish Highlands in Aug.

I'll be in Dornoch for 10 days in mid-Aug. on a golf trip. Does anyone have recommendations on a day of fishing within a reasonable driving distance from town? If so, what kind of gear to bring, who to contact, etc.?

Dronoch in Aug.

Graham: Thanks for the good info. I see I'm going to have to do some serious research, but at least I know now where to start. Bill Taylor

Highland Itinerary

My recommendation for a 10 day trip to Scotland: 10 days fishing. Golf was invented to occupy those few Scots who were poor fishermen.

Certainly try the Kyle of Sutherland........estuary for Oykle, Shin and Carron so there can be a lot of fish there if there is little water in the rivers. Above the bridge at Bonar Bridge can be good (but crowded). Couple of other places a bit higher up. One is where it narrows about a thousand yards above the mouth of the Shin.. South Bank. Walk across a couple of fields and there is a wonderful pool.......needs to be fished as the tide is turning and going out. You might also be able to get onto a Carron beat, but I cannot remember which agent controls most of the fishing.

Salmon & Permit: Thanks for the tip on Kyle of Sutherland. I've passed by there many times on the drive from Inverness to Dornoch, but never fished it. I guess it will be apparent when I get there and look, but from which side of the river do you approach when fishing above Bonar bridge? Also, how do you access the second spot you mentioned? thanks, Bill Taylor

re the fishing above Bonar Bridge, you approach it from the South side. Turn off the A386 just South of Ardgay.....follow your nose, you need to cross the River Carron and then its a little road that winds its way down to the Kyle. You drive a few miles (sorry, memory a little ropey on precise distances). After the railway line leaves your right hand side to cross the Kyle, the road wiggles a bit and then becomes pretty straight for a while. You cross over a little stream and before then just before the road bends off to the right, park up and walk across the fields down to the Kyle. If you miss it by a few 100 yards, walking up and down a bit you will discover the spot - it is a noticeably narrower section about 40 yards long, steadily widening out. Flat fields on the opposite bank. Check out www.streetmap and you should be able to see the place I am talking about.
