Fishing Holidays in Scotland

The fishing is on the Lower River Deveron, one of Scotlands top 5 Salmon rivers known for its great value fishing with extremly large fish for a river of its size.

The prolific Salmon fishing starts from the Bridge of Alvah goes through the gorge and offers a wonderful mix of slower and faster pools.The fishings has a 5 year average of over 170 Salmon on a 4 rod beat split into 2.

Montcoffer is without doubt one of the rivers best beats set in secluded and stunning scenery wher fresh fish are caught right up until closing day at the end of October.

Anglers return year after year generation after generation to this wonderful river in a really beautiful and undiscovered part of Scotland.
