Local Fishing

Scotland in miniature best describes this little known land, rolling hills, forests and breathtaking seascapes add this to the superb fishing that is available and you have the ingredients for a perfect holiday 

The fishing is superb with everything from small brown trout in the burns to the vast numbers of good sized Tope that visit our waters every year. The lochs hold some superb coarse fish and trout and two famed salmon rivers in our catchment area the Cree and Bladnoch. We are within easy travelling distance from most venues and places of interest and the warm waters of the Gulf provides us with our own unique weather front which is less harsh than the rest of Scotland and many parts of England. Pike fishing is plentiful with lochs such as Ken and Ronald within travelling distance

The long coastline of Dumfries & Galloway has attracted sea anglers for years, with magnificent views of the Lake District, Ireland and the Isle of Man on a clear day. The Flat Rock at Balcary is a favourite place for catching monster cod and the run of tope in Luce Bay is excellent, while Dogfish, bass, conger, mackerel and pollock also provide good sport in the local waters. Many sea angling trips are available throughout the region and shore fishing is also quite popular

The hotel has its own sea fishing rods for complimentary use by guests

Superb fly-fishing can be arranged on Dunskey Estate. We can organize everything, from tuition for beginners, to complete fishing packages and holidays
