Loch Insh Fishing

Loch Insh has had record breaking catches back in the 80's, although the salmon are few and far between these days we have plenty of hungry pike out there, 30+ regularly caught

We also have Brown & Rainbow Trout as well as a wee shoal of endangered Arctic Char still fighting their corner with some cracking three pounders last year.

Our Gillie will tell stories of catching seven pound char in the 70's which he later found out would have stood as the UK record for char till this day!

Clive was never happier than out on The Loch bringing salmon to the restaurant and keeping an eye on the place from a distance.

We have two fishing boat licences for our own little boats which have small outboards to make life easy touring around Loch Insh

Visitor boats are not permitted on loch insh but you can bring your own outboard and take one of our Rowing boats
