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. 

Cornhill is a noted spring beat, and the first fish is usually caught in February. The spring run then builds through March, April and May, grilse and summer salmon run through June and July, and when water temperatures drop away in the autumn, sport can again be excellent.

Cornhill has several famous pools across its length including the Clump, Raven, McGregor, Gledfield, Lairds Cast and Little Falls and the beat is both beautiful and a delight to fish. Fishing is from the left bank, there is a good, but basic fishing hut, and some walking is required. Carron expert Allan Donaldson is the part time ghillie and he will show new tenants the water.

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.

Please note that whilst Cornhill can be very productive it is a spate river and in periods of low water the fishing can get very difficult indeed.
