Fishing in Royal Deeside and the Cairngorms, Scotland

BalmoralRCH_4124v2Per Heikkala


Royal Deeside is know for its Salmon fishing however several trout fisheries allow families and groups to visit and everyone can have a go at catching the stocked fish. These often include brown, rainbow, blue and golden trout. Some of the fisheries even have tagged fish that entitle you to a cash prize if you are fortunate enough to catch one.

Such fisheries can also be a real godsend when the river is in spate and too high to fish safely, or alternatively, during the late summer when the water levels may very occasionally drop well below normal summer lows making it difficult to catch a wild salmon.
