FISHING CLOSE TO THE OBSERVATORY

 

There is a wealth of fishing to be had, in the immediate vicinity of The Observatory all year round Ė most of it very inexpensive.Those waters marked with an asterisk (*) below, are between five and ten minutes walk from the house.None of the rest is more than half an hourís drive.While it is hoped that the following information is accurate, none of it can be guaranteed.Please check all details well in advance.

There is a lot of good information about fishing in the area on the Pitlochry Angling Club's site.

 

For a pretty guaranteed catch, rod hire and instruction try Drummondís Trout Farm (40 miles and about 50 minutes drive away) http://www.drummondtroutfarm.co.uk/
