Ben Damph Estate has alot to offer those who enjoy the outdoors, with 14,500 acres of land, it contains an awe-inspiring mixture of magnificent mountains and glens, sea lochs and inland lochs, with views constantly changing colour and mood.
Loch & Sea Fishing
At over three and a half miles long, Loch Damph is the largest inland loch on the estate. It is easily accessible by car and has some of the best brown trout fishing in Scotland. Boats are available to hire to house tenants during the season.
Day rate for boat hire - £35, with local Ghillie - £65
Irish Lough Boat now available for £60 a day self-drive taking a maximum of three people. (She is called Keda and was made in Ireland by David Gray of Lough Arrow boats)
Boats are booked directly with the boat man and ghillie - contact numbers are available from the estate office.
There are many other lochs on the estate with varied accessibility. For some visitors, one of the greatest attractions are the large number of hill lochs. Many of the more remote lochs are rarely fished and offer fine fishing opportunities for wild brown trout.
The estate has one salmon river, The Thràil. The river Thràil flows into the Torridon river near where it meets the Sea at Upper Loch Torridon. It has some good pools and many excellent specimen salmon have been caught on this stretch. The Thràil House is situated next to this river.
Loch Torridon is a large sea loch which is impassable by fleet trawlers, this provides a mini haven for local fish stocks and good bottom fishing for the sea angler.
Apart from the beach fishing from the shores of the estate, boats can be chartered for sea fishing at Shieldaig, just a few miles away.
