Fishing & Sporting

Fishing

Guests staying in our lodges are welcome to fish on Loch Ericht and Loch Rannoch from the bank or you are welcome to bring your own boat to launch.  Please ask for rules before booking.  Both lochs have a good wild stock of Brown Trout.  Good trout fishing in both lochs and further hill lochs are available but please ask about access. For instruction Alistair Gowans 01796 473718

Fishing for Brown Trout, Charr and coarse fish such as Pike is popular in the area. Anyone fishing must, by law, carry a permit to do so. There are a few salmon but these are not available for fishing as they are few and far between and should be left to repopulate the river and lochs.

When fishing The Outdoor Access Code should always be adhered to. No litter should be left, no trees cut down for firewood.

Sporting

Stalking red deer is a great way to discover some of Scotland’s landscape and culture. The red deer on the estate are carefully managed on a sustainable basis producing healthy quality food in balance with the local environment. and Deer welfare, conservation and environmental enhancement are important initiatives for the estate.   The tradition of deer stalking will offer you an insight into Scottish culture which many other visitors will never experience. Deer stalking is the term we use in Scotland for hunting and shooting deer.   It is an important part of modern-day land management.  It also contributes to the local economy; helps protect many native plants and species and maintain a healthy and strong population of red deer.  Deer stalking is also a traditional activity in Scotland, a link to the traditional culture of the Highlands. Please also discuss stalking the deer with your binoculars or camera.
