Fishing on Atholl Estates
Atholl Estates provides some of the most scenic fishing in Scotland. The estate has three salmon fishing beats on the rivers Tummel, Garry and Tilt, plus a hill loch for wild brown trout.
 
Salmon Fishing
The Lower Tummel cuts through some of Scotland's most impressive scenery, the Tummel beat extends from the village of Moulinearn to the Logierait bridge (approx 2500 yards), just before the Tummel meets the Tay at Ballinluig. The Garry Pol Dornie is one of the most beautiful stretches of river in Scotland, the Pol Dornie beat of the River Garry flows past Blair Atholl and towards the dramatic Pass of Killiecrankie, offering some immensely satisfying fishing for discerning anglers. The Tilt runs through the famous Glen Tilt, this stretch of water offers unparalleled scenery and an abundance of wildlife. The river is split into four beats but only the middle two are let.
Trout Fishing
There can be few better remedies for stress than a day's fishing for wild brown trout on a quiet Scottish hill loch. The only sound to disturb the peace is the gentle lapping of water against the sides of your boat. Atholl Estates offers wild brown trout fishing on Loch Broom and stocked rainbow and blue trout fishing on Rotmell and Dowally.
