With its superior guides, knowledge and equipment, Alba Game Fishing arranges the best trips to the finest places in Scotland.

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.

The Alba team describe their services thus: “Our fishing days are for busy people looking to fulfil a bucket-list dream, from the UK or North America, to experience Scotland’s inspiring, educational and spiritual places – in an age where time is precious and traditional experiences have become clichéd.”

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

Here, we choose a few of our top places to stay on an Alba trip.
