Over the past couple of years, Sue Pomeroy has interviewed some of the ghillies with many years of experience of taking guests fishing for sea trout and salmon on Loch Maree and on other local waters.

In this, the first of an occasional series of programmes, Sue talks with Ian Cross of Lochcarron who was formerly a ghillie on Letterewe estate, Kinlochewe estate and Loch Maree.
