Travel around Scotland and you’re never far from a loch, river or a coastal view. It is no wonder that Scotland is rated as one of the world’s top fishing destinations.
Scottish waters provide a huge variety of fishing opportunities, from salmon rivers, still water lochs with brown and rainbow trout, plentiful coarse fishing for pike, perch, roach, bream, rudd, carp and tench and a bountiful coastline where skate, cod, pollock, flounder, mackerel and bass can be found.
With the trout season running from mid-March to the end of September and the salmon season lasting from February to October there is ample opportunity for a fishing vacation or short break in Scotland.
Our recent article entitled ‘Scotland hooks anglers with bountiful fishing opportunities‘ contains tips and advice on fishing in Scotland including a selection of hotels specialising in fishing breaks and vacations. Anglers can choose from a castle location, a riverside lodge, a Scottish country house or a golf resort with its own fishing academy.
So, if you are angling for a great deal then cast your eye over our latest News & Offers section. If fishing is not on your menu there are opportunities for golf, spa and foraging breaks as well as news about our member hotels.
Whatever you are, have a wonderful June.
Jeremy Hawkings, Chief Executive,
