Gordon Castle offers the ideal venue for a fishing holiday in the Scottish Highlands. We manage eight miles of double bank fly-fishing on the world renowned River Spey, one of the “big four” Scottish salmon rivers, and our catches of salmon and sea trout are amongst the most prolific in Scotland. All our fishing holidays are individually tailored to your requirements, include ghillie support, and can be arranged with excellent fully catered or self-catering accommodation.
“There is no question that this is the finest and most productive stretch of water in Scotland.” A.Grimble, The Salmon River Of Scotland, 1902
All of the Gordon Castle and Brae Water beats is fly fished with between three and six rods and, in the interests of conservation, we usually operate a catch and release policy for sea trout and salmon. We offer a variety of fishing throughout the year, with the salmon season running from 11thFebruary to the end of September. From June onwards the salmon are at their most prolific. However, the ardent fly-fisher may prefer the earlier season when the “springers”, although fewer in number, provide the fiercest fight and a great sense of achievement when caught.
