Fish on Loch Awe with the help of an expert ‘Ghillie’. Ghillie is a Gaelic word meaning lad or servant and it is his job to help you catch the resident Brown Trout – or even the Ferox Trout – as well as looking after the fish in his locality.
If you’re thinking of coming up to Ardanaiseig for a fishing break, let us know and we can book a Ghillie on your behalf.
