A visit to Amhuinnsuidhe Castle Estate offers the opportunity to experience the facilities of one of the finest sporting estates in Scotland. Set amidst the dramatic and pristine wilderness of the Outer Hebrides, you will find outstanding salmon and sea trout fishing and excellent stalking and rough shooting. We will ensure that your sporting requirements are more than catered for with advice and guidance from the Estate Manager and his team. We are pleased to offer Exclusive Use sporting weeks, or for individuals and small groups, our Mixed Rod weeks are always very popular.
FISHING & TACKLE
Except when the rivers are in spate most of the fishing is done Hebridean style from a boat. There are five resident ghillies to look after guests and their company and thorough knowledge of the area are a major factor in the enjoyment of the day. Many guests return year after year.
The big sea trout start to run in June with salmon a week or two later. Weights are comparable with those found in similar waters in Scotland and Ireland although numbers are generally greater. Sea trout average 2lbs with salmon averaging 5lbs. The heaviest recorded salmon taken from the estate is 23lbs.

BEAT & POOL GUIDE
The quality of the salmon and sea trout fishing on the Amhuinnsuidhe Estate is unsurpassed. The name Amhuinnsuidhe (pronounced ‘aven-suey’) is the Gaelic for ‘sitting by the river’ and indeed one of the salmon and sea trout systems enters the sea next to the Castle. There are freshwater loch and river systems all in remote and beautiful surroundings yet most are accessible by vehicle or on foot. During your day out you are likely to observe golden eagles, white-tailed eagles, and deer.
Our fishing beats can be viewed on the interactive map which will also provide you with some information about the individual systems.
At Amhuinnsuidhe Red Deer stalking takes place from September to October. Some hind stalking may be available from November to February. Two guns can normally be accommodated at any one time.
In Harris, we shoot grouse from September as they are a bit later in nesting than on the mainland. There are also snipe around at this time and this offers a good mixed bag. The woodcock start arriving in November, but with the main fall in December and early January. You may want to consider some hind shooting along with the game birds offering a good mix for a week or a half week. Please see our Tariff page for special deals on mixed sporting weeks.
