Consistently the best Middle Dee beat during Spring.
With fishing both above and below Potarch Bridge, Ballogie is a beautiful beat set in forest and farmland. It is a classic fly fishing stretch of the Dee, which caters for all tastes, from streamy pools at the Gannets, Flats and Kelpie to the deeper waters of the Sand, Slips and Bridge pools.
The Potarch Hut is a popular lunchtime meeting place with a wood-burning stove capable of boiling water and heating snacks. Potarch Café & Restaurant is also an extremely popular rendezvous for anglers with outside seating.
'Fishers' packed lunches can be provided.
Ballogie is the middle of the 3 Ballogie Estate beats (Carlogie, Ballogie and Commonty) and is situated on the right (south) bank of the river between Boat of Kincardine and the Burn of Cattie. Ballogie is divided into 3 rod beats fished in rotation, which allows a rich variety and varied challenge. There is good vehicle access to both the top and bottom of the beat with car parking at Potarch and a footpath along the whole length of the beat. Two of the huts have heating and the Gannets hut has toilet facilities. The two main huts are attractively located and families will enjoy the secluded picturesque location with the diversity of flora and fauna.
Wading is dependent on river heights and when necessary varies from easy pools to some, where wading should be undertaken with caution.
A shared ghillie is included in the price of the beat, from 1st February to the last week of June and also from the beginning of September to the end of the season. From June to September there is an additional charge if ghillie services are required.
