South Uist AC

Fishery

"The sea is all land, and the land is all lochs" is a common description of the Uists. Hence, the rough estimate that there are some 800 lochs in South Uist and Benbecula, from the largest Loch Bi to a number of glorified puddles - all with potential!

You may have to book a particular loch for boat fishing, but with a reasonably priced permit, you can bank fish a vast range of lochs wherever and whenever you choose.

MacGillivray’s, Balivanich, Benbecula.

Post Office, Daliburgh, South Uist.

Storas Uibhist, Oifis Storas, Daliburgh, South Uist.

SAFETY

Prior to obtaining a fishing permit for any of the South Uist and Benbecula lochs, each angler must complete a declaration form relating to Gyrodactylus Salaris and the Wearing of a Life-jacket. Click here to download a pdf.

SUAC has a number of automatic life-jackets for hire from our Agents at a charge of £1 per day or £5 per week, in addition to a deposit of £15. which will be paid back only when the life-jacket is returned in an un-inflated condition. Anglers may of course prefer to bring and use their own. If anyone fails to return the hired life-jacket, they will be billed for £50 to enable a replacement to be bought.
