Scottish Holiday Cottages with Fishing

Many fishermen will appreciate the luxury of the traditional Scottish fishing hotel, whose experienced staff will go to great lengths to ensure a successful fishing trip, taking care of every detail of the holiday, from the arrangement of the fishing to the provision of full board and lodgings. Others will prefer the freedom and relaxed informality of the self catering option, a holiday cottage from which to explore the fishing opportunities in the lochs and rivers of the vicinity.

Or perhaps the chosen fishing beat is tied to a conveniently located self catering cottage. There are numerous self catering houses and cottages available for rent in Scotland, with easy access to trout and salmon fishing. Many are listed in the brochures produced by VisitScotland and available from tourist information offices throughout Scotland.

On this page, you will find details of Scottish self catering accommodation with a bit of information about the fishing opportunities they offer. Those who own or let self catering accommodation with access to game fishing in Scotland are invited to send details to me by e-mail for inclusion in the list below - see panel below for required information.

This newly built house offering self catering accommodation for up to 7 people sits in an elevated position looking over Scapa Flow and the South Isles but is conveniently located just 4 miles from Kirkwall. It has been built in a traditional style with welsh slate roof, flagstone floors and multi fuel stove but has all the comforts of modern living. Under floor heating, powered by an environmentally friendly ground source heat pump, ensures that the Lodge is always cosy even when Orkney experiences several changes of weather in one day!   
Orkney is a fisherman's paradise with a variety of lochs for wild brown trout fishing and a long coastline offering lots of opportunities for sea angling from boat or the shore.  We can arrange boat hire, ghillie services and visitor membership for the Orkney Trout Fishing Association prior to your visit. We can even arrange to have your "big ones" vacuum packed and /or smoked for you to take home. The larger Lochs of Harray, Stenness and Broadhouse are approximately 20 mins drive away and the smaller Kirbister Loch is just a five minute drive down the road! - Ideal for that evening "dabble"
