    Amhuinnsuidhe Castle, Isle of Harris, Scotland

    Amhuinnsuidhe Castle is situated in a stunning and romantic seaside location with views to South Harris and the islands beyond and is world famous for its sea trout and salmon fishing.

    The name “Amhuinnsuidhe” is the Gaelic for “sitting by the river” and, indeed, one of the fishing rivers enters the sea next to the Castle. The Castle has its own hillside gardens and is surrounded by 55,000 glorious acres of Trust-owned land – designated under European legislation for its plant and bird life, and a paradise of steep hills and sea cliffs, white sand beaches and turquoise seas, remote glens and lochs.

    You will be delighted with Amhuinnsuidhe Castle’s impressive public rooms which are light and well proportioned and enjoy dramatic sea views to the south and west across the sound of Taransay, as do the majority of bedrooms.

    The rooms are beautifully decorated and sympathetically furnished with antiques, paintings and pictures. As with many Scottish houses of the period, all the principal rooms are on the first floor.

    In addition to the grand hall and panelled dining room, there is a drawing room, conference room, small sitting room, library and billiards room.

    The castle is fully staffed and all meals are provided, the emphasis being on fresh local produce, which can include seafood (lobster, scallops and prawns) as well as salmon and sea trout and the Island’s venison and lamb. Any special requirements can, of course, be catered for.

    Outstanding experience

    Here I am fishing the remote and haunting Loch Ulladale at Amhuinnsuidhe. If you listen carefully you can hear a Golden Eagle chick calling for its mother which appears in the film 2.

    The lochs seen at the end of this second video include the famous Loch Voshimid (left - with boat).

    Staying and fishing at Amhuinsuidhe is a truly awe inspiring experience!
