Gordon Castle, River Spey
There is little doubt that the Gordon Castle beats on the River Spey cover some of the finest salmon water in the UK. Gordon Castle manages eight miles of double bank fishing on some of the most productive water on the river. Situated on the Lower Spey, fish are present or moving through the Gordon Castle beats throughout the season. So there is always a good chance of hooking into fish. In addition to the fishing, this lower part of the River Spey flows through beautiful wooded countryside and is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Catching or not, it is a stunning area and a salmon fishers paradise.
The area and fishing alone are enough reasons to visit, but the opportunity to have exclusive hire of the castle itself is one not to be missed. It is of course true that salmon fishing in the UK struggles to compare itself to destinations like Iceland or Russia when it comes to the numbers of fish. But in terms tradition and opulence few places can compair to hiring Gordon Castle and casting line on its wonderful waters.
