Fishing holidays and breaks in Scotland

Fish on holiday ScotlandEnjoy a peaceful fishing holiday in Scotland beside a river, loch or the sea. For fishing self catering activity holidays, stay in a self-catering cottage, pine lodge or house for a comfortable home from home during your holiday. Scotland is known for trout and salmon fishing, as well as coarse angling.  For fishing just a short walk away, see these Scottish cottages with fishing on site

It doesn't matter wherabout your stay in Scotland, there will be fishing nearby.  Scotland's rivers are famous for their clarity and salmon. Prince Charles did his fair bit of salmon fishing promotion in his youth. Salmon fishing may be expensive but there are plenty of places where a license is not required or where one can pay a day fee. Hire a boat by the day to fish on a calm loch surrounded by hills, sheep and woodland.

The Scottish self-catering accommodation owners will be able to tell you about the best places to fish -either on-site or in their area. Select a cottage or pine lodge that appeals to you and start planning that fishing break in Scotland.
