fishing in the highlands
Kiltearn House is situated in the heart of the Northern Highlands on the shores of the Cromarty Firth. We are ideally located for access to some of the best fishing that Ross-shire has to offer. Two major salmon rivers drain into the firth and there are a number of lochs locally offering excellent wild brown trout fishing.
Salmon fishing is available locally on the River Alness and the River Conon.
For information on salmon fishing on the River Alness check out the AlnessFishing.com website. This site provides information and availability of permits for both the private Novar Fishings beats and for day tickets on the Alness Angling Club beats.
CononFishing.com provides similar information for the River Conon, including information on how to source day tickets for the Conon estuary from Dingwall & District Angling Club, and for the Upper Conon and Upper Blackwater from Loch Achonachie Angling Club.
Brown Trout Fishing
Wild brown trout fishing is available for the River Alness (April-June), Loch Morie, Loch Bad a’ Bhathaich and Loch Eye through TroutQuest. Loch Achonachie Angling Club offers brown trout fishing on Lochs Meig, Achonachie and Scardroy in Strath Conon, and the Kyle of Sutherland Angling Association have brown trout fishing on a number of lochs near Bonar Bridge.
Rainbow Trout Fisheries
There is a well managed rainbow trout fishery nearby at Stoneyfield Lochs, Invergordon.
There are 2 more rainbow trout fisheries to the West near Contin, at Tarvie Lochs and Loch Achilty.
Fly Fishing Instruction
GAIC-qualified fly fishing instruction for both trout and salmon fishing is offered locally by TroutQuest. Trout fishing instruction takes place on a private lochan just outside Evanton, and salmon fishing instruction is usually offered on the River Alness.
Whatever your interest let us organise it for you, we want your stay at Kiltearn House to be truly memorable and enjoyable!
Outstanding! Highlight of our holiday, will be back! and expect more Orcadians.”
