tay & tributaries


At 120 miles long, the River Tay is the longest, and one of the best known rivers in Scotland – immortalised for Tay salmon fishing. It is truly Scotland's largest and best known Salmon river, famous for its salmon, brown trout and grayling fishing. It flows northeast through Loch Tay, then east and southeast past Perth to the Firth of Tay, crossed at Dundee by the Tay Bridge, before joining the North Sea. The Tay has numerous salmon fisheries; its main tributaries are the Tummel, Isla, and Earn, Braan, and Almond. The drainage basin of the Tay and its tributaries forms one the most fully integrated hydroelectric developments in the north of Scotland.

Most fishing experts and enthusiasts break it into 3 sections, the Lower, Middle and Upper Tay. While we can help you arrange fishing almost anywhere on the River Tay, we concentrate mainly on the Upper Tay and the main tributary feeding it the Tummel - from its source on Loch Tay at Kenmore, to the confluence with the River Tummel at Ballinluig. It is at this point a medium sized river with excellent salmon and trout fishing. Salmon fishing is easily available at most times throughout the season. Good grayling too.

Many of our rivers here, particularly the smaller ones, are often overlooked by the visitor - a serious mistake. The Ericht and Isla for example produce vast numbers of salmon, but are usually only fished by locals. Such rivers are therefore a golden opportunity for the rod prepared to explore a little.

Notable subsystems we concentrate on, mainly tributaries of the Tummel, include the superb little River Garry, and the Gaur. We have access to many interesting beats and some quite superb secluded fishing amidst breathtaking scenery and a host of wildlife.
