If you find yourself facing somewhat tricky or near impossible conditions for daytime fishing then why not take a break and enjoy some of the other activities in and around the area.   A pool or beat rested in the heat of a summers day may then offer an opportunity of a fish at last light.

There are several excellent golf courses within an hour’s drive of the river – as well as the nearby courses at Fort William and Spean Bridge,  the beautiful 9-hole Traigh golf course near Arisaig is highly recommended https://www.traighgolf.co.uk/ Going east there is the excellent course at Newtonmore and just 20 minutes further is the fantastic championship course of Spey Valley in Aviemore http://www.macdonaldhotels.co.uk/our-hotels/macdonald-aviemore-resort/golf/For further advice on golf give Fishery Manager (and ‘high handicap’ but keen local golfer) Jon Gibb a call on 07786 493048.

For families there are the fabulous golden sand beaches between Arisaig and Morar and  the Harry Potter steam train that runs twice a day from Fort William to Mallaig  https://www.westcoastrailways.co.uk/jacobite/jacobite-steam-train-details.cfm
