After the good news from the First Minister that recreational angling is permissible, preparations are underway to open Rothiemurchus Fishery.  The ponds & lochs are awaiting their first stock of the year and we will be following the Government guidelines to revise our activities as our visitors and team’s safety is our main concern.  All being well, we anticipate opening Rothiemurchus Fishery on the 11th July.

In the meantime, a limited number of permits are available to local residents only for wild fishing on our lochs and the River Spey.

Please can you email Rothiemurchus Centre for details or to make a booking.

We will try to get back to you quickly but we have a very small team working so please be patient and sorry but we cannot answer phone calls.

Before heading out for a cast, we suggest anglers refer to the guidance found at:
