High water - 8th October 2014

We are sorry Rothiemurchus Fishery is closed because of the recent high water.  Until water levels are much lower and we can see the damage, we will not be able to give a date for reopening.  Please check here and the Fishery page or telephone 01479 812345 for updates.

9th October 2014 - Re pathways: The flood water has now retreated and the paths are now accessible.

Please be aware that the Bennieside path (Rothiemurchus Campsite - Tullochgrue) especially has been disturbed significantly and although is now passable the ground is uneven and top surface material has been largely washed away on the bottom section of the path. Temporary cross drains spanning the path have been made to divert water.


Rothiemurchus has sponsored the Scottish Nature Photography Awards again this year - the prize is a complimentary osprey photography session (off-peak season).

Fishing FrenzyThe Rothiemurchus Fishery has always been a popular place for our visitors. Whether it be children trying fishing for the first time or experienced anglers coming for a day's sport, the fishery provides an experience for all abilities.

The ponds are regularly stocked and anglers got to see it for themselves the other day when the big fishing loch was stocked with some tremendous looking fish weighing in at 10lbs and over!


Needless to say it got everyone excited at the prospect of catching one of them. Anglers set out to position themselves in what they thought was the perfect location.

A few hours later the first large fish was caught by this happy chappie – weighing in at 10.75lbs.

There is still plenty of fishing and indeed large fish to be had at the Rothiemurchus Fishery - open 9.30am - 5pm every day.
