Local Fishing

Sands River provides sea trout fishing suitable for beginners and with a slipway on site the campsite is the perfect place to launch small crafts and boats.


Within the area the picturesque River Kerry offers the opportunity to catch salmon during the Summer months, and Loch Kernsary, Loch Horrisdale and the Fairy Lochs can all be fished for brown and sea trout.


The pier at Gairloch Harbour is a great beginners venue for mackerel fishing and is also home to many sea fishing trips which can take you into the Minch or to the Summer Isles. Nearby Badachro also provides Shellfish Safaris where you can experience the thrill of reeling in creels full of lobsters, prawns and octopus.

Most loch and river fishing in the Gairloch area is governed by the Gairloch Angling Club and permits can be obtained from Gairloch Harbour or the Gairloch petrol station, both of which are only a short distance from Sands.


Our on-site shop sells a selection of fishing gear, including rods, weights, floats and lures.
