There are lots of places to go fishing in the area, although in some areas there might be restrictions or permits might be required.

The stretch of water in front of the Hotel is a sea loch called Loch Linnhe. This is a salt water loch and fishing is free with no permit required. You are welcome to fish off the end of our own pier where you can try your hand at catching pollock, mackerel, conger eel, Thornback Ray, Cod, Flounder, Sea Trout, Dogfish  and Ling, to name a few.  Mackerel are here in large shoals from around the start of June until the end of September, and taste delicious barbecued!

About a 5 minute walk from the hotel there is an old jetty that is excellent for fishing and popular with local fishermen too. Glencoe Lochan is not only a beautiful walk but is regularly stocked with rainbow trout. Permits are required. Heading towards Fort William, the Corran Narrows at Corran Ferry is a great place for a spot of sea fishing too.  Watch the seals on their rocky outcrop looking to pounce on the fish before you do! There are three scenic lochans at Torlundy Farm, by Fort William which are well stocked with Rainbow trout.  Worth a visit as they supply fishing tackle, fly fishing tuition and the views of Ben Nevis are superb!

The local hardware shop in Ballachulish, Tools and Tackle, can also help you out with all your fishing needs.  They also sell bait and will let you know the best places to fish at the present time.
