Description of Fishings

The fishing is situated about 8 miles north of Dunkeld and runs along the west side of the A9. Access to the fishing hut is directly opposite Kinnaird House, coming from the south turn off to the left
approximately 4.5 miles from the bridge over the river Tay. 

From the north turn off to the right approximately 1.5 miles from the Ballinluig exit. The beat lies in the attractive Tay Valley and
comprises approximately 2 miles double bank fishing.

The beat is easily fished from the bank or by wading. The use of boats is dependant on water conditions and at the discretion of the ghillie.
A number of sea trout, as well as salmon and grilse are caught each year.

Fly,  spinning and worm are all permitted
on this beat. Anglers are requested not to
fish with worms before 30th April or after
1st September.

The Lower Kinnaird beat is 2 miles double bank. It starts at the junction of the Tay and Tummel Rivers and ends at the Dalguise beat boundary. 

Lower Kinnaird will fish at all heights but it is at its absolute best in low water when it is a lovely fly beat. The methods allowed are fly
and spinning.

When the water is high, a boat can be used for harling with a ghillie. Boats are used at the ghillie’s discretion as this beat is not always navigable at all heights.

This is considered a six rod beat. To reserve the beat exclusively, a party must pay for six rods even though. Under no circumstances
is rod sharing allowed. Guests who have reserved rods will be the only ones allowed to fish.
