A luxurious hotel in the North of Skye, surrounded by magnificent scenery and fishing
Firstly, Skeabost hotel is located in the North of Skye. Moreover, it is a stylish, relaxed and rural hotel set amidst some of the most breathtaking scenery in Scotland.
Skeabost began its life as a sporting lodge, built in 1871. Accordingly, the hotel is next to the River Snizort, one of the best salmon rivers in Skye. This river offers fantastic salmon fishing after a rise in the water level, as it begins to drop.
In addition there is a 9 hole golf course.
Mixed fishing and touring vacations throughout Scotland
To begin with, Skeabost offers 20 bedrooms and excellent Scottish hospitality. The hotel is set in 37 acres of woodland. A short drive from the hotel are wonderful natural marvels like the Quiraing and Old man of Storr.
Additionally, evening meals are provided, using local seasonal produce and the creative kitchen will give you a taste of Scotland.
Fishing near the Skeabost Hotel in Skye
Finally, as well as salmon fishing on the wonderful River Snizort, there are a wealth of fishing opportunities on the Isle of Skye.
There are hill lochs offering fly fishing for wild brown trout, some lochs more accessible than others. Lastly, we can arrange shore fishing trips targeting pollack on flies or spinning with lures. Occasionally we can charter a boat.
The head ghillie at Skeabost is Danny Docherty and we work closely with him, when bringing guests to Skye. Danny has a finger on the ever changing pulse of the rivers and lochs of Skye and is a true professional. Alba can provide Orvis breathable Waders in all sizes, boots and top quality fishing tackle by Sage and Orvis, saving you the hassle of transporting expensive tackle from overseas.
