Looking to go salmon fly fishing closer to home? We have compiled a great series of domestic salmon packages in Scotland whether you are just starting out your salar journey or a seasoned silver tourist chaser.

River Dee, Little Blackhall & Inchmarlo

Salmon fishing, River Dee, Lower Blackhall, Inchemarlo, Aardvark McLeod

Little Blackhall and Inchmarlo are located on the middle Dee upstream of Banchory. The mile of double bank fishing that the two beats cover is some of the prettiest and most scenic water on the river. Because of the varied pools, the beats can offer fishing in all water heights. Whether it is spring, summer or autumn, there is always a good chance of catching salmon.

We are delighted to be able to offer packages on the Little Blackhall and Inchmarlo beats. The package includes self-catering accommodation at Little Blackhall Lodge. The lodge is located a stone’s throw from the river so minimal driving is needed to access the beats. Set on the site of the old Blackhall Castle the lodge is comfortable and spacious. It is the perfect base from which to drink whisky and reminisce on the days fishing.

River Findhorn, Drynachan

River Findhorn, Ivy Cottage, Cawdor Estate, Aardvark McLeod

The River Findhorn is known to be one of the prettiest salmon rivers in the UK. The Findhorn is not a large river, but the peaty waters are heavily featured and provide many exciting pools. The Cawdor Estate offers seven miles of fishing in the Drynachan Valley. The water is split into three beats rotating over six days. Each party of three will fish each beat twice over the week. This stretch of the Findhorn leaves the spectacular mountain and moorland scenery of Coignafearn and Tomatin before carving its way through the rocky gorges at Banchor and Lethen. It is a wild and unique area.

The Drynachan Valley is famed for its excellent runs of salmon and trout. From late May onwards these middle stretches of the Findhorn can offer some superb salmon fishing. These middle stretches of the River Findhorn are well suited to a small double handed or single handed rods. The pools are easily manageable and less daunting than on some of Scotlands larger rivers.

Ivy Cottage is a comfortable three bedroom self catering cottage owned by Cawdor Estate. The cottage is warm and comfortable, and the roaring fire in the sitting room is the perfect place to settle at the end of the day.
