A spokesperson for the environmental conservation organisation said: "We have fishing and shooting on offer in beautiful locations, food, drink, holidays and much more.

The auction is aimed at raising funds for the Kyle Riverwoods Project and donations can also be made directly through the auction website.

"Kyle of Sutherland Fisheries Trust is part of a national initiative called Riverwoods aiming to restore native riverbank woodlands to create shade to keep rivers cool."

The charity auction has a target of £25,000 and funding raised will be used to plant trees of local provenance, restoring and shading critical habitats.

The auction can be accessed here.

The Kyle of Sutherland Fisheries and the Kyle of Sutherland District Salmon Fisheries Board have the remit of managing the fishery and the riparian habitat within the catchment of the five rivers flowing into the Kyle of Sutherland.

Their purpose is to support conservation initiatives and advance public education.
