3 Reasons to Choose Self-Catering For a Fishing Holiday

Scotland is an ideal destination for a fishing holiday, with world-famous rivers, an abundance of freshwater and sea lochs, long stretches of coastline, and breath-taking scenery.  Whether you’re keen on fishing for salmon and trout, sea fishing or coarse fishing, you’ll find top-class fishing in locations all across Scotland, from the Highlands and Islands, to the Scottish Borders.

If you’re thinking about a fishing holiday in Scotland, why not stay in a local holiday cottage?  Here are 3 reasons why self-catering is a great choice for your holiday accommodation.


1.  Freedom to Fish

Whether you want to hit the rivers and lochs with the early bird, or fish late into the evening, a holiday home gives you independence and flexibility to fish at times that suit you – so you can make the most of the great fishing on offer!

2.  Cook or Freeze your Catch

When you come home laden with fish, you can cook your catch for dinner (and freeze the fish for another day).  There’s also plenty of space for you to store your equipment, and dry any wet clothes before the next day’s fishing.

3. Flexible Family Holidays 

Take the rest of the family on holiday with you and while you enjoy the fishing, they can explore the local area.  A holiday cottage provides freedom for everyone to spend their holiday in Scotland exactly how they wish, whether it’s fishing the local lochs and rivers, visiting nearby attractions or just relaxing in your own living space.

A local holiday home also gives you an authentic experience of Scotland.  Some holiday homes have added bonuses of free fishing lessons or access to private lochs.  Cast a line into this pool of self-catering fishing to find the perfect holiday home for your next fishing holiday, from cottages on the banks of rivers and lochs to chalets and lodges in the heart of fantastic fishing.
