It's out of control. To fish there without treated clothing is to play Lymes Roulette

Last time I was up that way (2015 I think), we took a wee croft near Inchnadamph at 200 quid for the week!
Ridiculous prices now and if I was fishing there again, I'd probably camp. Is the fishing worth it? Personally I don't think so. Plus the tick situation was becoming desperate and I assume it hasn't eased any.

Covid and the NC500 changed  everything and the new laws by the SG have forced many owners out of the market apparently.

It was also surprised that there were still a lot of available lets. By this time of year most used to be sold out.

Trout Fishing / Is It Worth It?
Last post by Wildfisher - January 25, 2024, 07:33:53 PM
I was checking availability and prices of self catering properties in Assynt today. The price inflation is eyewatering.

Places that cost around £400 / week pre-Covid are now topping £1000 and some are double that!

Question is, are these prices too high for anglers considering the average quality of the fishing?

I have to assume that anglers are no longer the target audience!
