Foulain is a comfortable, remote cottage, in a stunning location, at the West end of Loch Erribol. This is an area of outstanding beauty, a wilderness, a real escape from modern day life. The cottage is also close to some of the best salmon and trout fishing in the Highlands.
Erribol is about 15 minutes from the village of Durness. There are many beautiful beaches, and scenic walks nearby.
The cottage sleeps 6 people, with 3 double bedrooms. Foulain is really ideal for one or two couples. The tasteful interiors of the cottage are made using natural textiles and the sofas are made by Another Country
There is a well equipped kitchen, washing machine and good wi-fi. The wood burning stove adds warmth and atmosphere.
The cottages let for 7 days minimum stay. In addition we can arrange a boat for you on Loch Hope and fishing for up to 2 rods on the stunning river Polla.
The Polla is a classic four rod spate river, with 3 miles of double bank and 14 named salmon pools.
There is good shore fishing nearby for Pollack, and the Limestone Lochs of Durness are worth a cast, if you want to catch some of the biggest and prettiest trout in Scotland.
The Durness/ Eriboll area – fishing and touring
Rest assured you could easily spend a week in this area, there is so much to see and do, for anglers and non anglers. The village of Durness is about 15 minutes from the cottage. You can buy provisions and fuel here. The fuel is available 24 hours.
Smoo cave is worth a visit, as is the Balnakeil Craft village. The craft village has many unique artists and crafts, as well as one of the best chocolate producers in the Highlands. Alba Game Fishing have been touring and fishing in this area for 16 years, and I have been fishing here for 35 years.
The limestone lochs of Durness are about 20 minutes from the cottage. These lochs are gin clear, rich in food, and hold very beautiful and often big trout. The photo above shows a typical trout from the area. These fish are wild and genetically perfect.
