Hike & Fish Package

delimiter image

What better way to see some authentic Scottish wilds than hiking? There are literally hundreds of fishing spots in Scotland that can be hiked to. It’s highly unlikely that anyone else will be fishing there.

Taking a back pack, a packed lunch, and a rod up into the hills to fish for wild trout or pike is not only the best way to get-away-from-it-all, you’ll also see hidden corners and spectacular views, and likely some wildlife. It’s how to appreciate the treasures of the stunning Scottish landscape.

These venues are lesser known, rarely fished, and very special. Get remote and rugged on a hiking and fishing adventure.

Please give us an idea of your fitness so we can choose a venue to suit your abilities. It’s important not to go beyond you comfort zone in terms of strenuous exercise.

Locations

Argyll

Argyll is one of Scotland’s best places for getting out into the wilds and exploring some brown trout lochs. As seen in the photo above there are some substantial rewards for those that go the extra mile, or three. Trips leave from Kilmelford, Eredine or Portsonachan
Image

Perthshire

When you look at the map of Perthshire you see its incredible hiking and fishing potential. Almost all those bits of blue which pepper the map hold trout, and some of them also hold pike. Views are captivating and you’re unlikely to see anyone else. Trips leave from Aberfeldy
Image

Edinburgh

​Our Edinburgh trout guides are rainbow trout specialists. There are a few upland lochs which can be hiked to but given the proximity to the city they do suffer quite a bit of angling pressure. Best to head to Perthshire or Argyll for the hiking.
