This beat is one of the most popular upper Tweed beats. Much of the water is ideal for first time anglers, but there is plenty to keep the experienced anglers happy too. There are two miles of interesting double bank fishing and another mile of single bank, making three miles in all.
The beat is in an attractive location and easily reached by car, although access to the main hut can be restricted after a really large flood. The banks are generally grass with few interfering trees, so that casting and walking are made relatively easy.
There are fifteen pools, including the Traquair Boat Pool which must be one of the best pools in the area (without a boat which isn't really needed). There is one ghillie and the number of rods allowed to fish is nine, split into three beats and rotating on an am/pm basis.
Please note that it may be necessary for parties of other than three people to be split over separate beats.

Why you need to fish here
The beat sits within the Traquair Estate and has 15 named pools with 2 miles of double bank and 1 mile of single bank fishing. The fishing is varied with long pools and glides, but also some nice faster water that will hold fish.
