Country house hotels for fishing holidays in Scotland

Fishing has to be one of the most peaceful and rewarding pursuits in the right environment.  Surrounded by the majesty of nature, the flowing water and tranquil woodland or open fields, Scotland has some of the most impressive fishing around.

Grand country house hotels on private estates, where hikers roam alongside spectacular wildlife, you can head out for a day of quiet solitude, go with a party or have a ghillie to show you the ropes and introduce you to the area, whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro.

From the Borders to the Highlands, Scotland’s rich and diverse landscape has attracted adventurous holiday makers for centuries.  While spa hotels may have the monopoly on wellbeing, nothing really beats fresh air in this magical countryside.

The likes of Glenfinnan House Hotel on the idyllic shores of Loch Shiel combines the comfort of a warm welcome and excellent food – traditional haggis being a real favourite, alongside wholesome play areas for children on family holidays and then there’s the peace and quiet in which to enjoy that fishing break on your own or with friends before returning in the evening to roaring fires and excellent whiskies.

Other activities in the surrounding area include horse riding, or kayaking on the lochs, and of course you can combine your active holiday with a little exploration of Scotland’s rich history, both in the small towns and villages or venturing to its famous cities including Edinburgh and Glasgow where shopping, restaurants, bars and cafes exist in joyful abundance.
