River Kirkaig

The Kirkaig has a history of producing big fish and its 3 beats, each fishing 2 rods, are some of the prettiest in Scotland. Fishing is by fly only and the beats are let by the day. 

The Kirkaig flows through magnificent country and fishers cast with a backdrop of the mountains of Suilven Canisp and Ben More Assynt.  The Falls of Kirkaig, 2.5 miles upstream from the mouth of the river are an impressive barrier to the further upward migration of salmon and sea trout, and the river below. This is divided into three beats, each of two rods, which are fished on a daily rotation.  Each beat has a variety of excellent holding pools, some of which are rocky and only accessible to the most agile.  The Kirkaig is very much a spate river, and restricted to fly only with the season running from 11th February – 15th October, the main fishing months being July – October.
