Upper Kinnaird Upper Kinnaird

Upper Kinnaird beat is made up of two separate beats (formerly Upper and Lower Logierait). The upper section is fished 3 days a week on an alternative day basis.

It is approximately 2 miles long and consists of some very slow deep water and some interesting runs. The best pool is the Newton pool which is 55ft at it’s deepest.

A boat can always be worked trolling at all heights on this beat.  The boat as also useful for transport to and from some of the more interesting bits of fly water. From the bank the most productive method is spinning.

The lower section is fished 6 days a week and consists of approximately half a mile of Tay water and half a mile of Tummel water.

The best pool on the Tay is the Rock Pool. Other good spots include The Bridge, Cottage Pool, Green Bank and Channel.
Under high water conditions this beat can fish extremely well from a boat.

It is a good spring beat with the largest salmon caught in recent times weighing 38lbs. With decent water heights, this beat can also fish well in the autumn.

Three fishing boats can be operated on this beat and it is ideal for novices and corporate parties. Upper Kinnaird beat can accommodate 6 rods for full weekly lets and up to 10 rods on the alternate days.

The beat includes a short stretch of the River Tummel which offers an interesting alternative and as a confluence can be productive.

There is an excellent fishing hut and a resident ghille.

Head Ghillie is Mr James Tritton and he can be contacted for further information or for bookings:
