Situated in South Harris, the natural system runs from the hills above Loch Langabhat to the sea at Leverburgh (An-t-Ob). The extensive natural system covers some ten square miles, providing fly fishing from the banks, by wading or from the boats. Also an excellent selection of fish are to be found.
The five lochs are linked but different in character giving a variety of fishing. All are easily reached from the road. Boats with motors are available. Ghillies should be booked in advance if required.

Loch na Moracha
A beautiful loch surrounded by hills with many interesting lies accessible from the banks well below the road and parking, with full access by boat.
A substantial loch four kilometres long, yet conveniently split in two parts. The smaller, sheltered southern end is accessible from the banks and the home to large brown trout as seen in the Gallery. Prolific catches here are available as a half day option. The large northern section requires a Boat Handler if using a boat, due to safety requirements.
All beats can be fished from the banks, by wading or from a boat.
The Outer Hebrides are one of the most beautiful and remote, unspoilt areas left in Europe. The Isle of Harris boasts miles of superb, clean sandy beaches and a marvellous variety of wild flowers particularly on the 'machair' land, all within two or three miles of the Obbe Fishings. It is also a bird watcher's paradise.
