system and provides salmon, brown trout, ferox and arctic char from the estate boats. Fishing is largely done by boats on Langavat: however, the estate also fishes one bank of the Langadale River at the head of the loch. Langavat itself can be fished from the shoreline, of which Aline has approximately four miles.
The Tiorsdam system consists of a small river with several productive pools and a loch which offer exciting salmon and sea trout fishing from July onwards. The Scaladale is a picturesque river which can offer excellent sea trout fishing in spate conditions. The rarely fished Vigadale has salmon and trout and, like the Scaladale, runs through a pretty, secluded North Harris valley near the lodge.
In 2007 94 salmon were caught in August alone at Aline, with the best day producing 14 salmon and the largest being thirteen and a half pounds.
Numerous little hill lochs offer a choice between a few large trout (up to 4lbs) or a plethora of small ones ideal for children. Weather permitting, our sea boats can take up to 8 people sea fishing for mackerel, pollock or skate and putting down and pulling up the estate's prawn and crab pots.

Fishing on Scaladale and Kintarvie, which conveys free of charge with the lodge rental, is by fly only and is catch and release. Loch Langavat fishing can be by any lawful method (one rod per fisherman) and fish may be kept.
