Other East Coast Rivers


This small spate rivers catchment area of 70 square miles lies to the northeast of Strath Kildonan. A number of highland burns meet at Gobernuisgeach to form the river which flows southeast for 20 miles through heather clad moorland and then woodland to enter the North Sea at Berriedale. There are three beats which rotate daily for 2 rods.

Although occasional spring fish are caught the main runs are - dependant on rain - in July, August and September. Between 70 and 100 salmon/grilse with an average weight of 6lb are caught each season. There are no huts or gillies on the river and the estate reserves the right to close the river in low water conditions.



Where to stay
