FISHING IN SCOTLAND
A n angler’s dream destination, Scotland is home to some of the finest trout lochs and salmon beats in the world.
Fishing is an ideal relaxing activity for novices and seasoned fishermen alike who flock to Scotland for the plump salmon and the stunning scenery. Most of the best fishing grounds are situated within easy reach of CLC Duchally Country Estate and we can help you to obtain permits, gain access to private waters and arrange ghillies.
For novice fishermen, several clubs with well-stocked ponds are situated near to the resort where you can learn to fish in Scotland, while fishing trips can also be arranged for the more experienced anglers.
In the Ochil hills on the nearby Gleneagles Estate, the Frandy Fishery focuses on fly fishing for high quality rainbow, brown and blue trout, set amid beautiful scenery. The reservoir is stocked weekly, which ensures an abundance of fish and is well worth a visit.
Orchill Loch is one of Scotland’s most picturesque and tranquil environments for a perfect fishing experience. It’s not unusual to catch fish here in the 3lb – 8lb weight range and the loch is stocked twice weekly with ‘hard fighting’ rainbow trout. Family groups are very welcome, and the loch is one of the best small waters in central Scotland, attracting fishermen from far and wide.
Several striking lochs, rivers and lakes can be found in the area surrounding CLC Duchally Country Estate, providing the chance to fish for salmon, trout and grayling.
