Spectacular stretch of Scottish salmon fishing

8th August 2007 Print
Spectacular Stretch Of Scottish Fishing A lovely stretch of the River Ugie, extending to approximately 11 miles of both double and single bank fishing, providing a 10 year average of 75 salmon/grilse and 213 sea trout.

The Pitfour Fishings comprise the largest and most significant fishing on the River Ugie, and also include stretches of the North Ugie Water and South Ugie Water. The Ugie, a relatively small river that winds through picturesque countryside, rises in the north east of Aberdeenshire and meets the sea at Peterhead, approximately 32 miles to the north of Aberdeen.

The subjects of sale extend to approximately 11 miles of double and single bank fishing, from the mouth of the river at Peterhead. Having been let for many years to the Ugie Angling Association, the Pitfour Fishings are offered to the market with vacant possession and provide a rare opportunity to purchase the majority of a prolific sea trout river which also boasts a good average catch of salmon.

The season runs from 11th February to 31st October, the first run of sea trout appearing around June and salmon generally arriving later in the season. The best pools on the river are Flats, Scotts Pool, Pot Sunken, Meadows and Cruives, the latter being man made.

Niall Macalister Hall, selling agent at Smiths Gore’s Edinburgh Office says: “It is not often that such an expansive stretch of a good quality river comes to the market. The Ugie is renowned for its run of sea trout and has a great reputation as being an excellent river to fish”

Offers over £400,000 are invited.
