Welcome to River and Green
Perhaps you would like to combine a few days of fly fishing for trout in Scotland with a couple of rounds of golf at St Andrews, or shoot partridge and pheasant in the morning and go Atlantic salmon fishing in the afternoon? Our personalised service allows you the flexibility to design your perfect sporting vacation in Scotland; the ideal solution for groups of friends, families and sporting clubs.
There is something very special about fly-fishing in Scotland, because the experience is not only about catching fish.
In Scotland we have some of the finest rivers and lochs for catching Atlantic salmon, fresh-run sea trout, wild brown trout and grayling anywhere in the world. We also have the grandeur of the Scottish scenery and the unique history and tradition which defines our culture.
Hunting & Shooting
Game shooting in Scotland attracts sportsmen and women from all over the world, due to the quality of the sport, the tradition and the landscape. At River & Green we can arrange;
- Driven pheasant & partridge (groups of 6-9)
- Walked-up mini-drives (groups of 4-6)
- Rough shooting (groups of 2-4)
- Deer stalking
The diverse and dramatic natural environment of Scotland provides spectacular opportunities for every type of game shooting. In a sense, the choice of game determines the setting and the scenery. From duck and goose in the estuarine setting of the Solway Firth, to driven pheasant in the rolling hills of Perthshire, to deer stalking in the rugged Highlands; Scotland has it all.
Scotland is universally recognized as the "Home of Golf" and for any truly dedicated golfer, this is the ultimate destination to experience the very essence of the sport. It was along the coasts of Fife, East Lothian and Ayrshire where it all began over 600 years ago. Today, building on the legacy of those historic pioneers of the game; Old Tom Morris and James Braid, there are now over 550 courses across the country.
Scotland is most famous for its links courses. Open Championship venues such as Royal Troon, the Old Course, St Andrews, Muirfield, Carnoustie and Turnberry entice golfers from around the world and never fail to inspire and amaze. Top inland venues include Gleneagles - with its three courses, the King's, Queen's and PGA Centenary Course, which will host the Ryder Cup in 2014 - Blairgowrie, where Greg Norman won his first-ever European Tour title, Dalmahoy, a former Solheim Cup venue, and the Macdonald Cardrona.
The pike fishing in Scotland is some of the best in all of Europe. Virtually all of the major lochs hold a population of pike and in some cases they support huge numbers of very large fish. Ancient records talk of fish weighing over 30kg, but the current British record is a fish of about 22kg, taken from Loch Lomond.
When arranging pike fishing trips for our guests, we tend to favour Loch Awe, Loch Tay, Loch Lomond, Loch Venacher, Loch Voil and Loch Ken. During one afternoon in 2009, on Loch Awe, three of our Italian anglers fishing in the shadow of Kilchurn Castle on Loch Awe caught 18 pike; the largest weighing around 12kg!
