Cornhill, River Carron

Cornhill is a beautiful and productive beat on the lower river Carron. The beat is single banked and fishes 2 rods across a total of 12 pools. The beat is let by the week. 

In recent years the Carron has had one of the best spring runs in the country. The fishing at Cornhill, due to the Gledfield Falls which acts as a temperature barrier, has been excellent. From late May summer salmon and grilse join the resident spring fish and the river can fish well right to season end on 30th September. In late August and September the majority of fish caught will be resident fish.

The fishing itself includes the Clump and Whirl pools and the river is a delight to fish. There is a part time ghillie on the beat and you will be shown the pools on arrival.

Cornhill is located one hour’s drive north of Inverness and approximately 2 miles from Bonar Bridge. There are a number of self-catering cottage options available in the vicinity. If your party are looking for more than 2 rods then we also let a number of other beats on the Carron and please be in contact for availability.

Please note that in the right conditions Cornhill can be very productive. It is, however, a spate river and does require rain to fish at its best.
