Aswanley, Glass, Huntly, AB54 4XJ
We specialise in providing fly-fishing, shooting and stalking outings in a relaxed family atmosphere for those staying in our holiday cottages - in a way that was traditional for Highland families. These outings can be arranged to suit your group. We cater for all levels of experience from children trying fishing for the first time to experienced stalkers looking for a challenge.
We offer a diverse range of game shooting on Aswanley sporting estate. So let us know what you would like to do and we can arrange outings to suit (depending on the season).
Roe deer Stalking outings are organised in the early mornings and evenings, accompanied by an experienced guide and 4WD vehicle. It can be done as part of a larger hunting package. For those with a good reserve of stamina, the daytime can be spent with a rod on the River Deveron. Or you can take up the 'McNab' challenge and also try for a grouse on the moor. A McNab is the name given to feat of the hunting guest having successfully stalked, shot and landed a stag, grouse and salmon.
We offer trout and salmon fly fishing holidays for up to eight rods on the River Deveron. The River Deveron is an ideal place for beginners to learn salmon or trout fly fishing - it is a manageable size, fly fishing tuition is available from an experienced ghillie and its proximity to our self catering fishing lodges means that outings can be as short or as long as you wish. Don't let the size of the River Deveron deceive you, the record salmon ever landed on a fly was caught by Miss Morison of Mountblairy, some 20 miles from Aswanley and weighed 61lb!
