Lower Crathes W Durris

Fishery

The Lower Crathes/West Durris beat provides predominantly double bank fishing on the Lower Dee below Banchory. Lower Crathes comprises the left bank from two-thirds of a mile above Durris Bridge to one mile below with the West Durris beat occupying the right bank, from one and a half miles above the bridge to one mile below.

All pools are readily fished from the bank or are easily waded. The Upper Bridge and Birkenbaud are sometimes fished from a boat at the ghillie's discretion. Different pools favour differing heights of water and wind directions, with fishable water available throughout the season. Rods rotate between combinations of pools each half day to give all equal opportunity.

One fishing hut on the Lower Crathes side serves the beat. The hut has a wood burning stove, w.c. and telephone. Additionally, there are three shelters for the use of fishers and the hut, shelters and fishings as a whole are easily accessible by car.

Where minimum bookings of 3 days are specified, these must be taken Monday - Wednesday or Thursday - Saturday. Any other combinations of bookings will be cancelled and monies refunded.
