When you imagine salmon fishing on one of the mighty rivers of Scotland, you have a certain optimism of dreamy fly water, seeing salmon leaping in the pools and there being a reasonable chance of catching one. You would hope for professional, knowledgable ghillies, who are not only a pleasure to spend time with, but who really want to help you to catch fish and also have the ability to improve your casting with expert advice.
Last but not least, a beautiful lodge to retreat to after a full day of fishing which feels like home from home and has everything that you could possibly need for a group of fishermen and their guests.
We’ve been extremely fortunate to fish at Arndilly for over two decades, both catching our first salmon on the beat and continuing to catch many more over the years. We’ve fished on many other beats but found nowhere else which seems to provide that perfect mix of elements that make Arndilly the most magical of places and one of the top salmon beats in the country.
