Saltwater fishing

Some of the rock fishing in this area is among the best in the UK. The eastern side of the Trotternish Peninsula on Skye is particularly recommended, big pollack lurk in these waters. Codling and wrass may also be among your catch, and mackerel are also around in number. There are many great spots for rock fishing in this area, but you must take great care on this rough ground and from rising tides. Keep alert and stay safe.
