Mountain Biking - Cycling Outer Hebrides

Fishing Outer Hebrides

Salmon Fishing

Salmon and Trout fishing in the Hebrides is rated amongst the best Scotland has to offer, why not give it a go? The Gress and Coll rivers are close to Surf View and ideal for Salmon and Trout fishing.  Permits are needed for some, but not all rivers, so please check before you go.

Have you ever tried saltwater fly fishing? This relatively new sport why not give it a shot, or take a day sea angling in some of the richest waters in the UK.

Photography Outer Hebrides


The Outer Hebrides with its spectacular landscapes and seascapes, dramatic sunsets and ancient architecture is never short on vistas to photograph, but if you fancy doing something a little different?  Some of the sporting estates on the island offer 'Stalking' at certain times of the year, shooting wildlife photographs!  With all the adventure of a hunt, but a happy ending for both animal and hopefully photographer with a 'shot' of a lifetime. Check with the various Estates for further details.

Hill walking Outer Hebrides

It sounds too easy, just open the door and go!  But for the dedicated walker who wishes to plan a route and take advantage of some of the spectacular walks the islands have to offer publications are available for the Western Isles: the handy little Hallewell pocket guide has 34 walks of varying difficulty; Mary Welsh's Walking The Western Isles (Clan Walk Guides) describes 40 walks with only a small amount of duplication; and there's a leaflet guide to The Harris Walkway from Bill Lawson Publications. All are available at the Tourist Information Centres and various craft and tourist shops throughout the islands.
