We are well-known for our tailor-made experiences to ensure that all your needs are met on your Private Tour of Scotland.

Fishing for Trout in Scenic Scotland

The TOP-FIVE locations to go fly fishing in Scotland where you’ll be surrounded by beautiful scenery:

1. The River Ness crosses the Scottish Highlands and offers splendid surroundings for angling species like salmon or trout, with the greenery of Inverness as a backdrop.

Where to Stay
The region around the River Ness offers a range of smart Luxury Guest Houses and B&B’s. Our favourite is the Loch Ness Lodge. The house is modern, but with a real character without the annoying faults, you get from some old properties. Each room is beautifully decorated, and afternoon tea is served in the cosy lounge with a roaring fireplace.

2. Loch Lomond is ideal for catching fresh fish whilst enjoying the surrounding nature and pearl blue sea.

Where to Stay
Loch Lomond is a real jewel, and it has some wonderful places to stay. How about a B&B with baronial dimensions and turrets. The owners of Cardross House, Sir Archie and Lady Orr Ewing are superb hosts.

The Queen of Loch Lomond must surely be Cameron House Hotel, offering everything Loch related directly from the property's door. This is a five-star resort with a touch of glamour, several eating venues, a golf course, a spa and a leisure club.

3. Loch Tummel is tucked away in Pitlochry, away from the business of everyday life. Surrounded by glorious lakes and greenery, you get the chance to angle for brown trout, perch or pike.

Where to Stay
The Victorian town of Pitlochry has premium accommodation at Fonab Castle Hotel. Spa, Lochside restaurants and bars, outside pods and a massive selection of whiskies. What more could you want from a castle in Scotland. Fonab is ideal as a launchpad to the Whisky Trail, Blair Castle and the Cairngorms National Park.

4. Craufurdland Fishery is based on the Craufurdland Estate and has various fish such as brown and blue trout. If you’d like to refresh yourself or warm up after a day of angling, you can use the estate facilities.

Where to Stay
Craufurdland Castle, with its multitude of activities, is only 35 minutes drive from Crossbasket Castle Hotel. The property is only 20 minutes from Glasgow and offers luxury accommodation and high-end dining at the Michel Roux Jr Restaurant.

5. Balmule Park Fishery offers an experience for both beginners and avid anglers in the scenic area of Fife with rainbow, blue and brown trout as the catch of the day.

Where to Stay
Balmule Valley Fishery is under an hours drive from the centre of Edinburgh. Therefore it makes sense to stay in the capital of Scotland. Our two favourite hotels are the five-star Caledonian Hotel and the boutique-sized Kimpton Charlotte Square.
