Rothiemurchus Fishery information
Cast for rainbow trout at this loch at the southern end of the village; buy permits (from £10 for two hours to £30 per day, plus £5 for tackle hire) at the Fish Farm Shop. If you’re a fly-fishing virgin, there’s a beginner’s package, including tackle hire, one hour’s instruction and one hour’s fishing, for £45 per person.
For experienced anglers, there’s also salmon and sea-trout fishing on the River Spey – a day permit costs around £20; numbers are limited, so it’s best to book in advance.
