Looking for a safe family staycation with trout fishing this summer?
Ledmore is a traditional island house in a totally secluded location next to a large wild trout loch.
A private waterfall in the garden is a much loved feature and an ideal spot to relax and enjoy a BBQ, or wander through the meadows surrounding the house and have a picnic with a view of the lake. There are no other houses nearby, so it’s about as secluded and private as you can get!

An absolutely cracking week for my clients and guests on Altyre Estate for W/C May 10th, with a total of 19 fresh Spring salmon, with the largest two fish of around 15 lbs, and all fish safely hooked and released! Another 10 fish were hooked and lost during the week, so all in all it was Spring salmon fishing at its’ very best on the fabulous Findhorn!
In stark contrast to last year some of us have been able to get out on our local waters and have a cast and enjoy the best of the spring fishing. Until recently this was restricted to your local authority area and a short distance out with. Now we have more flexibility we have had a greater number of members and visitor anglers enjoying the Kemnay Angling Club beat, which I’ll be delighted to feedback upon further as the season progresses.
Andy Britton has won the Bemersyde Trophy with a 32lb salmon. The fish, which was caught at Tweedmill Beat, near Coldstream, secured Mr. Britton’s award for the annual trophy, which celebrates the largest – and best-caught – salmon landed on a fly on the River Tweed.
Following the announcement the Scottish Government introduced, from midnight on 5 January, a legal requirement to stay at home except for essential purposes. This is similar to the lockdown of March 2020.
The First Minister acknowledged that it is important for physical and mental well-being that we can get outdoors for fresh air and exercise as much as possible. Given this, local outdoor recreation, sport or exercise is to be considered an appropriate reason for leaving home. Unlike the lockdown last year, the frequency of outdoor exercise is not being limited.
Outdoor non-contact activities such as walking, cycling and golf are permitted for all age groups.
Angling is also permissible provided this is within a single household group, or the group contains no more than 4 people from 2 different households. Children under the age of 12 from these households do not count towards this number.
