There are 30 pools on the six mile beat and the services of a ghillie are shared between the three rods on the beat. There are classic fly-fishing pools and due to the fast flowing nature of the River Dee, and the variety of pools, the beat can be fished at all water heights. The fishing experience is enhanced by the breathtaking scenery.
The beat is normally let on a weekly basis but during some periods it may be possible to rent on a part week basis.
Self-catering cottages are often available under separate arrangements through the Balmoral Estates Office.
Why you need to fish here
Balmoral is a three rod beat on a magnificent stretch of the River Dee on Balmoral Estates. The beat is fished from the right bank from April until July each year, unless required by members of the Royal Family.
