Fishing with a view in the Cairngorms

Fishing in the Cairngorms

Nestled amoungst the Cairngorms hills at Craggan Outdoors we have our own secluded huddle of ponds surrounded by nature and a stunning golf course. Whether you're after a full day or half day amidst the wildlife (but not too far from a hot cuppa and flushing loo!) we have plenty of sweet spots dotted around the ponds for you to pitch up and reel in the atmosphere (and hopefully a whopper too!).

With Rainbow Trout calling the lake home we offer a catch and keep included in the price for your first catch, with a small charge for any additional fish you'd like to take home for your fish supper.


£20 per rod (full day 10:00 - 17:00) £15 per rod (4 hours)

Whether you're an avid angler or a fresher to fishing, our collection of freshwater ponds is ideal for a day or half day fishing with a hot cuppa or cheeky cold bevvy just around the corner at our onsite cafe. Snuggled in amoungst the heart of our centre, you'll have the options of more secluded serene spots snuck away, to chummying up with the passing golfers on the ponds edge where the golf course sweeps by.

We work on a rod rate basis with a maximum of 3 rods per person, if you're ever caught short we have fly fishing rods available to hire for an additional £10 per rod. We definitely don't want your flies flying low, these can be hired for £2. For non-fly fishing anglers, we won't be able to offer any non-fly fishing rods for hire or bait, but do not fear! All rod types are still welcome, we don't discriminate...

If you're the fish whisperer of the Cairngorms and fancy taking home a pie load of Rainbow Trout, your first catch is included within the price, then any additional keeps are £5 per fish.
