Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Scotland -

HIGH­LAND SALMON fish­ing re­wards an­glers with some of the most stun­ning scenery Scot­land has to of­fer. The Beauly is no ex­cep­tion, com­bin­ing beau­ti­ful views with a high chance of fish­ing suc­cess, all within a 12-mile jour­ney of In­ver­ness where the lo­cal air­port re­ceives reg­u­lar flights from other Bri­tish and Ir­ish cities.


Although there is trout fish­ing, par­tic­u­larly in the trib­u­tary rivers Far­rar and Glass, it is as a salmon river that the Beauly is largely known. The river is di­vided into two beats, Up­per and Lower, both of which fish well for salmon given the right con­di­tions. The Lower Beauly usu­ally pro­duces the lion’s share of the salmon. Beauly Fish­ing Syn­di­cate con­trols 3¼ miles of the lower river, which is di­vided into three beats: The Falls, Home and Dounie. Although dayt­ick­ets are not avail­able, rods do oc­ca­sion­ally come up for let on a time­share ba­sis. Day-tick­ets are avail­able to vis­it­ing an­glers on the Beauly An­gling Club wa­ter, which ex­tends from Lo­vat Bridge to the tide. They cost a very rea­son­able £20. The Up­per Beauly is de­fined as from where the River Far­rar joins the River Glass down to just above Kil­morack Dam (which is fit­ted with a fish-friendly Bor­land-type lift). The Up­per Beauly syn­di­cate owns about 2½ miles of the river here, with day-tick­ets avail­able through Fish­pal and the Fish­beauly web­sites. Daily trout and salmon fish­ing per­mits are also avail­able for the River Far­rar, start­ing from only £15 for trout fish­ing and £35 for salmon.
