The best fishing venues near Edinburgh and Glasgow
Edinburgh is ideally located for a fishing break. To the south of the city you have the Scottish Borders and the River Tweed system. To the North of Edinburgh, the River Tay system and all the tributaries. Scattered all around Edinburgh are a enviable collection of trout lochs. Scotland has an abundance of fishing venues perfect for hosting fishing days, breaks and corporate fishing events.
Fishing rivers and lochs near Edinburgh
A short distance from Edinburgh and within easy reach of the city centre, there are trout and pike fishing venues that can take a capacity of 60 people. Outdoor catering can be provided at these fishing venues, using gazebos and groups can be looked after by a team of professional fishing guides in Scotland
Rivers make the perfect fishing venue for smaller groups, as most beats can accommodate up to 6 rods, and some can stretch to 10 rods. When we are approached for fishing venues we suggest up to 10 people a river would be possible, though extra guides are needed to ensure guests are safe when wading. As a general rule of thumb, the following matrix works well for river fishing days:
1 rod = 1 guide
2 rods = 1 guide
3 rods = 2 guides
4 rods = 2 guides
5 rods = 3 guides
When running any fishing event, the event and the venue undergo a risk assessment and this can be supplied to the booking agent. Our fishing guides in Scotland are trained first aiders and focus on safety as well as the enjoyment of the fishing event.
