Inver Lodge Hotel

"Inver Lodge Hotel"

Relatively few people come to this, one of the most desolate and remote corners of Scotland for a business meeting and most events take place in the wonderful countryside.

Here are a few suggestions for fishing and touring this part of Scotland by car.

Salmon and Trout Fishing

Salmon and trout in abundance are a famous feature of the northern Highlands and a great attraction to anglers. The clear running streams and lochs in this part of Scotland are the natural home of brown trout. The sea trout, after two or three years in fresh waters in which it is hatched, gradually makes its way towards the sea, where it grows quickly, takes on a silvery skin, and returns to the river to spawn. The salmon follows a similar life history.  The Inver Lodge Hotel is the ideal centre for the angler, with some excellent salmon fishings on the Inver and Kirkaig rivers. The hotel also has access to boats on certain lochs around the area.

River Bookings are through CKD Galbraith on 01738 451600

The Upper and Lower Inver as well as being excellent for salmon fishing provides good sea trout fishing in the evenings, and with the addition of the Middle Inver there is plenty of choice for any angler.

The hotel has boats on four of the lochs, some of which contain sea trout and salmon. All the trout are wild brownies and excellent baskets are taken annually. There are also innumerable hill lochs available for those who enjoy a good walk in the Assynt area.

Car Excursions

The location of Lochinver is such that it is an ideal base for leisurely trips by car with a wide variety of interests amidst the most beautiful and remote scenery to be found in Scotland.

One of the loveliest trips undoubtedly is the coastal road northwards from Lochinver, surely one of the most beautiful by-ways in the world, passing the small beaches of Clachtoll and Clashnessie with the pure white sands surrounded by rocky coves.

Then on to Drumbeg, before continuing along the winding road to Nedd, a crofting community in the tranquillity and remoteness of this beautiful area. The road continues its way through the rocky countryside never certain of its direction and providing the motorist with wonderful vistas. Before it reaches the main A894, it sneaks beneath the huge north western buttress of the Quinag peak. With binoculars red deer can nearly always be seen high up the grassy slopes, and not infrequently a golden eagle rides an unseen thermal while scouring the mountain slopes for its prey.

At Kylesku, one may cross the bridge to Scourie and Durness or return to Lochinver via Skiag road, bisecting the mountains of Quinag and Glas Bheinn and then running down alongside Loch Assynt.The round trip turning around at Kylesku takes two/three hours.

If you prefer to make a full day, then having crossed the bridge at Kylesku, one must visit the Smoo Caves before continuing around loch Eriboll and across to Tongue. Thence down to Loch Loyal and Lairg returning via Strath Oykel where salmon can be seen leaping up the Shin Falls.

Another beautiful drive which could easily occupy most of a day is the coastal road from Lochinver to Achiltibuie returning via Drumrunie and Ledmore.
