The Ravenspoint fishery is a new community venture. All revenue from the permits goes into helping to run non profit making activities organised by volunteers of the Co Chomunn (Community Co-operative). Permission to issue permits for salmon and sea trout fishing has been generously granted by Eishken Estate.
The Eishken Estate is approximately 15 miles from Stornoway on the Stornoway to Tarbert road. It is set in some of the most remote and beautiful scenery in the Outer Hebrides.
The fishing consists of six lochs set in the heart of the Eishken Estate. Five of the lochs offer salmon, sea trout and brown trout fishing. The only loch which does not offer salmon and sea trout fishing is Loch an Eilein.
All beats can be fished from the bank, there are no boats available.
Loch Sgiobacleit: 4 rods
Loch Airigh Thormoid: 4 rods
Loch Eishken: 2 rods
Loch na Beirighe: 2 rods
Loch an Eilein: 2 rods
Loch Mor Stiomrabhaigh: 4 rods
All island based anglers must show evidence of membership of a recognised angling club for access to the Eishken Estate lochs. This rule does not apply to bona fide tourists from out with the island.
2. Fishing equipment for hire
To help back packers and beginners we have a limited range of fishing equipment for hire (2 fly and 2 spinning rods, reels and buoyancy jackets). Whilst we have some flies, hooks, spinners available, anglers should acquire their tackle in Stornoway.
3. Ravenspoint Hostel, Kershader (Cearsiadair).
