Sailing Session - Traditional Hebridean Fishing Boat
- Duration: 150 Minutes (approx.)
- Location: KYLE, Ross-Shire
One of only a handful of these boats left in the world they were originally built on the Isle of Lewis and were used primarily for line fishing.
Our traditional sailing sessions at Raasay House incorporate this traditional style of fishing using long drop lines to catch a variety of fish including Mackerel and Pollock. We also have several creels (Lobster pots) located in the Sound which we use to catch a variety of crustaceans and sometimes the odd octopus or dogfish.
Sailing in ‘Oigh Niseach’ is a team effort and our qualified sailing instructors will teach you everything you need to know to sail this unique boat, as well as a wealth of sailing knowledge.
