Lower Pavilion Beat
Situated between, on the South bank, the historic abbey town of Melrose and to the North the village of Gattonside, Lower Pavilion offers double bank salmon fishing of over two miles in a stunning location with panoramic views of the Eildon Hills. Access is directly to the beat from the village of Gattonside, and access around the individual fishing beats and pools is possible by vehicle, or on foot. At the centre of the beat is the famous and often featured suspension footbridge, built in 1826.
The beat has a well appointed fishing hut with both female and male toilets. There is a large decked area for outdoor eating and plenty of parking.
