Scottish Fishing Hotels, Cottages and Camp Sites

The visiting angler, whatever his needs, will find a variety of good holiday accommodation throughout Scotland. Whatever his chosen location, from the Borders to Shetland, from the North Sea coast to the wild hills and lochs of the Western Isles, he will have a choice of excellent hotels, guest houses, self catering holiday cottages and numerous camping and caravan sites.

Throughout Scotland, there are many first class hotels, steeped in sporting tradition, which specialise in catering for the very specific needs of the game fishermen, whether they come to fish the famous beats of our grand salmon rivers, to walk the hills in search of wild trout or to fish through the short summer nights on our sea trout rivers, thinking of bed only when the eastern sky is touched by the first light of dawn. Many Scottish hotels have fishing to offer guests, perhaps a beat on a salmon river or access to fishing on a number of hill lochs. Those who prefer the freedom of self catering will find holiday cottages in most locations throughout Scotland, many linked to fishing lets or with easy access to local trout fishing. There are also many camping and caravan sites offering excellent facilities for those touring with tent or caravan, many of them ideally placed for the touring angler.



Finding Holiday Accommodation in Scotland

Local Tourist Information Offices will be able to provide detailed brochures with information about the whole range of holiday accommodation available, with photographs, maps, prices, contact details and useful information on local amenities for both fisherman and non fisherman. Some fishing is closely tied to specialist accommodation, either in a lodge or hotel, which is let in conjunction with the fishing but most fishing is let without accommodation, allowing the visitor to choose the type of accommodation which most suits his needs, taste and budget, from the most highly rated country house hotel to the most intimate of guest houses. Many Scottish hotels and guest houses are well used to catering for the needs of visiting anglers and will happily adjust meal times to allow a full day's, or, for sea trout fishermen, night's fishing. Many will provide packed lunches, drying areas for wet clothes and allow anglers to store their catch in the hotel freezer. Another benefit of staying in a dedicated fishing hotel is the chance to meet and swap stories with other fishermen in the hotel bar over a glass or two of fine malt whisky. Those who prefer the freedom of self catering accommodation might select one of many loch or riverside cottages no more than a good cast from the water or perhaps a caravan site within easy reach of his chosen loch or river.

A good place to begin a search for suitable accommodation in Scotland might be the appropriate pages on the Visit Scotland website, where you can search for suitable places to stay and even book hotel rooms or other accommodation online.
