Fishing

There are not many sports which combine peaceful surroundings, a chance for some contemplation and also a few thrills. Yes, fishing is one of our favourites, and Scotland is one of the world's top destinations for freshwater and sea angling, with world-class fishing available across the country throughout the year.

So if you're chasing the 'king of fish', the Atlantic salmon, or you prefer the hard fighting monster pike or giant common skate, we've got you covered.
