River Tay salmon fishing breaks in Perthshire

The Scottish Highlands and Perthshire offer some of the finest salmon fishing and scenery in Scotland. Tay salmon fishing is renowned the world over and Ballathie's riverside location is ideal for a fishing holiday in the Scottish Highlands.

Ballathie is situated on the banks of the glorious River Tay near the tributary rivers Isla, Ericht and Almond. Major lochs and fisheries are also close by, providing good stillwater fishing opportunities.

While the River Tay is world-famous for its Atlantic salmon, you can also fish for brown trout, rainbow trout, pike, perch and grayling in its waters. Fishing can be done from bank or boat, spin or fly.
