Description

Crathes Castle fishings stretch for 2 1/2miles of the left bank, immediately below Banchory.

The fishings are normally let for 4 rods, and are divided into 2 beats each with 4 major pools. There is a maximum of 2 rods on each beat and the rods will change beats at 1.00pm.

All the pools are accessible by car. There has been a newly built hut which has electricity, a solid fuel stove, microwave and a barbecue and this can be used by all guests throughout the day.

Please note that lunch is not provided.

Fishing can be from the bank or by wading.

There is a boat on the lower beat close to the hut and is accessible for wheelchair users.


There is a full time ghillie and a second available if requested. Tuition is available for less experienced by arrangement.
