The river Shin is a short and exciting river running from Lohch Shin into the Kyle of Sutherlan which it shares with the Oykel, Cassley & Carron.  Having a dam at the top of the river ensures plenty of water year round in order for the fish to run.  The upper river enjoys consistent sport once the fish pass the Shin Falls in late May.  WIth 3 miles of double bank fishing and 30 named pools, there is ample space for you to enjoy this wonderful river. 

The upper river is divided into 2 beats, each fishing 4 rods and rotating at lunchtime.  Catches have been consistent over the past decade andthe Shin is rightly famous for producing large multi-winter sea fish.
