More Scottish Fishing Days added

Anglers I don’t expect the rods on the following beats to be on our system for very long.

River Tay: Murthly Beat is one of the best beats on the Tay. For flyfishing it has few equals.  These beats fish well throughout the season and many spring salmon seem to make their first stop in the Murthly area. The beat is set among stunning woodland scenery with impressive stands of mature Douglas Fir and other species giving the whole beat a very grand feel. There is one ghillie on the beat and one boat but much of the river can easily and safely be fished by wading, especially in low water. There is also a comfortable hut on each beat with full facilities. For more information please click

We now have limited availability on  Murthly 1 Murthly 2

Tay: Kercock Fishings is one of the prolific lower middle Tay beats. Located in the heart of central Perthshire, we now provide two and a quarter miles of predominantly double bank fishing with good vehicular access. Conditions are suitable for both the fly and spinning and can comfortably accommodate the novice and more experienced angler alike. For more information please click

River Nith: Drumlanrig Middle. The Drumlanrig Castle fishings is within the Queensberry Estate (one of the Buccleuch Estates) in the grounds of Drumlanrig Castle near Thornhill, Dumfries & Galloway. The private beats of the Drumlanrig Castle fishings offer approximately 7 miles of exclusive Sea Trout and Salmon fishing across four defined beats (Lower, Middle, Upper and Nith Linns). The river broadens from a rocky gorge into a mainly graveled riverbed with suitable pools and reaches offering good accessible fishing for both Salmon and Sea Trout. The four beats vary in length but are balanced for quality. There are 28 named pools across the four beats. For more information please click

River Annan: Lower Annan. The Newbie Beat is a much sought after and productive fishery of about 2 miles, mostly double bank, and being just above the tide and at times in part tide affected, can produce fresh fish in even the lowest of waters.  For more information please click

River Don: Castle Forbers. The fishings are divided into five main beats (allowing 2 salmon rods/beat), and two shorter beats.The beats are centred on the Bridge of Keig, where the B992 public road crosses the river Don. The fishings extend to some two miles of double bank upstream, and 1.5 miles double bank downstream, with a further 1 mile of single (left) bank only downstream below the double bank stretch. There are over 20 named pools. As a guide the average width of the Don which is relevant to the fishings is around thirty yards. For more information please click

River Tweed: Lower Floors. Situated between the parkland of Floors Castle and the ruins of Roxburgh Castle, Lower Floors offers 1.5 miles of prime double banked salmon fishing. Lower Floors is ideally placed between Upper Floors and the Junction. For more information please click
