Fishing in Scotland

Fish Scotland’s magnificent lochs and rivers

fly fishermanScotland is known the world over for the fantastic, exciting fishing which can be enjoyed amongst its breathtaking scenery.   Whether you are a competition angler, a fly-fishing aficionado, or simply someone who’d like to give fishing a go, you can do it in Scotland.  And what could be better than staying in local self-catering accommodation, where you can lay out your equipment, dry your clothes and maybe even grill your catch?

Scotland has world-class river fishing on the Tay, the Dee and the Spey, to name just a few.  But you can also go sea angling on boat trips from many ports around the coast, including Dumfries and Galloway, Argyll and Aberdeenshire.  And many a mackerel has been caught by just dangling a spinner off the end of pier!
