Fishing the river Findhorn at Cawdor

The Findhorn River rises in the Monadhliath Mountains and for seven miles ebbs and flows through the Cawdor Estate, before making its way serenely into the Moray Firth amidst the sand dunes and pine woodlands of Findhorn Bay.

The Drynachan Valley, where the River Findhorn passages through the Cawdor Estate, finds the river in a transitional phase, leaving behind the spectacular mountain and moorland scenery of Coignafearn and Tomatin, soon to carve its way through the rocky gorges at Banchor, Lethen and Glenferness, before reaching the red sandstone banks of Darnaway and Altyre. The Drynachan Valley is famed for its excellent runs of salmon and trout; with these ‘middle beats’ of the River Findhorn being especially renowned for catches of sea trout.

The Cawdor Estate has three beats on its seven mile stretch of the River Findhorn: the top beat is Ballachrochin; the middle beat is Daless; and the lower beat is Dalbuie. Each beat is provided with a nicely presented riverside hut in which meals and refreshments can be taken safe from the elements. The beats are let by the week; the three beats rotating over the course of six day’s fishing (Monday to Saturday) to allow fishermen to experience two days on each beat. A beat map and rotation document is sent out to our guests prior to arrival and tuition and ghillie support can be arranged with an experienced Findhorn River ghillie.

We are happy to arrange accommodation for our guests in one of our luxury holiday cottages. Many of our regular sporting guests find that Fisherman’s and Gardener’s Cottages, sited as they are on the banks of the River Findhorn, provide the perfect setting for their fishing holiday.

The fly fishing season commences at the end of April, with the spring run, and closes at the end of September. Cawdor has a 75% catch and return policy, as do most Estates in the area, to preserve fish stocks for future years. For further information on prices, up to date catch figures and beat availability please contact the Estate Office.

Fishing is also available on the River Nairn – details to come
