“Some people are under the impression that all that is required to make a good fisherman is the ability to tell lies easily and without blushing; but this is a mistake.” by Jerome K. Jerome

If you are staying at THE GORDON ARMS Restaurant with Rooms you are luckily staying in one of Scotland’s finest fishing areas with salmon, trout, perch and pike.

St Mary’s Loch

St Mary’s loch Angling Club offers excellent unspoiled fishing 365 days/year on both lochs for brown trout, pike and  perch at a very reasonable cost.

If you enjoy peace and tranquillity in a beautiful setting then you really must come for a visit.
