Trout Fishing | Salmon Fishing



Inshore lobster, crab, scallop and prawn shellfish are activities carried out by a few of the crofters.

There is no large-scale commercial fishing from Durness but some people are employed from Kinlochbervie where mackerel, herring and halibut are the most common.


Shellfish Harvesting

Some people are known to harvest shelfish from the beaches and coastlines; these include mussels, cockles, winkles, oysters and razor fish.
