Rivers, Burns and Lochs
The waters around Achiltibuie hold wild brown trout, sea trout, salmon, ferrox trout and arctic char and angling permits are readily available. Most anglers choose to fish with the fly, and many waters are fly-only, with lochs fished by the traditional methods from boat or shore. The main waters are the rivers Garvie and Polly and lochs Oscaig, Badagyle, Lurrgain and Sionascaig, but there is a myriad of smaller lochs, many holding excellent fish and wonderful memories.
