Fishing in Shetland

Fishing in Shetland

Mon May 13, 2019

If you like fishing you will fit right in here at Herrislea House! Despite Gordon being a busy man, he likes nothing better than fitting in some time to fish. Luckily during the summer in Shetland it doesn’t go dark so there are ample hours to enjoy some tranquil Simmer Dim fishing!

Shetland anglers have over 300 lochs to choose from, and with abundant brown trout to be caught. The Shetland Anglers’ Association have boats for hire on some of the more popular lochs.

Sea angling is also very popular albeit challenging and there are several boats available for charters. You can fish for haddock, ling and mackerel

Be sure to ask at reception for tips on the best places to fish; Gordon will be delighted to help!
