Ideal for all field sports, hill walking, touring, golf or just relaxing and enjoying the Highlands.

We would be only too pleased to mail our brochures to you with full details. Looking forward to hearing from you and too welcoming you to Park House in the near future.
Apart from fishing, Lairg is an ideal centre for hill-walking and exploring the Highlands. Golf courses within easy reach include the championship course at Dornoch at Dornoch and links courses at Golspie, Brora and Tain. There are local woodland trails and the popular attraction of the Shin Falls where the salmon can be seen leaping upriver. As well as top quality fishing, Park House organises various other Field Sports for guests.
WILD BROWN TROUT FISHING
The quality of Sutherland’s wild brown trout fishing is second-to-none and Park House Sporting offers fishing on three excellent lochs:
- Loch Craggie: One of the top wild brown trout lochs in Scotland. Average weight of fish around 1lb, with several of 2-3lbs taken each season.
- Loch Dola: Average weight around 3/4lb, but with fish twice this size also taken.
- Loch Tigh Na Creig: Average weight 3/4lb with many fish of over 1lb taken each season.
- Availability: Day lets, with ghillies and/or tuition by prior arrangement. Prices on application.
- Tackle: Single-handed fly rods and traditional wet and dry fly patterns in various sizes.
- Note: All trout fishing from boats and strictly fly.
- Brown Trout Season: 1 May-30 Sept (excluding Sundays)
Beats of 3 or 4 rods are available on the Upper and Lower River Shin on weekly lets during the season (March-Sept). The Shin is a classic Highland river – full of character and with good runs of salmon and summer grilse. It belongs to the famous Kyle of Sutherland river system, which enters the sea on the east coast at Bonar Bridge and offers some of the best fishing in Scotland. Rods on two other rivers in this system, the Cassley and Carron, can also be arranged, plus on the Brora further up the east coast. Ghillies and salmon fishing tuition are available by prior arrangement.
