South Uist: fishing country

Fishing's a big thing out here; when you fly in and out of the Uists, it's obvious why. As more than one person's observed, from the sky the Uists are a collection of puddles divided by rock, peat and machair.

South Uist, in particular, is a magnet for individuals and parties out for a good fish. While I'm in no way an expert, I've seen pretty impressive salmon and trout hauled out of the waters. And rather good tasting, too (barbecued fish on a beach is one of life's pleasures). So there's now a website - - which pulls together information, and a few pictures, about fishing in that part of the Outer Hebrides:


Enjoy your catch...
