Fish in the best places in Scotland, guided by the best people, using the best equipment. Here, the Alba team chooses their favourite spots.

The only fishing and touring company to cover the whole of Scotland, Alba Game Fishing knows a thing or two about bespoke luxury fishing and touring holidays.

Fourteen years ago, Stewart Collingswood – a self-confessed fishing obsessive – set up the business in order to share his knowledge and passion with others. Alba Game Fishing has been creating luxury salmon, trout and saltwater fishing trips in Scotland ever since.

Whether you are a fishing expert or looking to host a day for beginners, Alba can deliver the perfect experience.

Here, the Alba team chooses four of their favourite venues for fishing.

PRIVATE PIKE-FISHING LOCH


Lying just forty minutes outside Edinburgh is one of the best lochs for pike fishing in Scotland. Enjoy a world-class guided pike-fishing trip from boat or shore and stop for lunch at a gorgeous lodge.

SALTWATER FLY FISHING


Try fly fishing for Pollock in the sea close to the shore from a chartered boat and you will learn Alba’s unique and highly effective methods. Their shore fishing marks are closely guarded secrets, and they are fishing tackle junkies.

HIDDEN GEMS HOLIDAY OF SCOTLAND


Alba’s most popular tour – a fully bespoke Scottish break – mixes fishing with touring and other unique activities. It includes accommodation, transport and excellent food.

SALMON FISHING ON THE RIVER SPEY


The River Spey is one of the world’s most breathtaking salmon rivers. Book some guided salmon fishing on the best beats and throw in a distillery tour and other sightseeing for good measure.
