Activity Special Offer

Fishing breaks

We can arrange breaks for the coarse sea or game angler. Secure store area is available next to our drying room which will accommodate your tackle if you require it to be left at our premises.  We can provide packed lunches and dinners by arrangement.

Coarse Fishing

Loch Ken and the river Dee are very popular with coarse fishers. Bream and very large perch are frequently caught but the water is better known for its Pike fishing, and fish over twenty pounds are caught regularly with the odd thirty pounder not uncommon. Large brown trout can also be caught when conditions are right.

Boats are available locally which can accommodate two fishers. These are supplied with an outboard engine, petrol and an anchor at very reasonable costs. Permits are not necessary when hiring a boat.

Sea angling

The famous Balcary point is not far away for the hardened winter fishermen who wish to catch large cod from the shore at this time of year. Excellent shore fishing can be had around the beautiful Solway coast most seasons, and if you are new to the area we can supply a detailed map of locations, times and species expected to be caught if necessary.

Sea boat angling can also be arranged from various ports on the coast - we are situated centrally to these ports and most are within a twenty mile drive, making Airds an ideal location.

Game fishing

There are many well known salmon and sea trout rivers available within a short distance of Airds. These, along with the multitude of trout lochs, make Dumfries and Galloway an ideal location for the keen game angler.


Shooting breaks

Take advantage of our special breaks specifically intended to attract shooters. We are aware there are few farm accommodations that can cater for the shooter in the area therefore we have securely fitted three, 2/3 gun storage safes in our secure storeroom. The keys for your particular cabinet will be yours for the duration of your stay and this facility will incur only a small charge. These are offered to shooters who wish to stay with us and enjoy the various forms of shooting available in the locality, with the knowledge that their guns are safe and secure whilst they relax.

We realise that most shooters prefer to have their own dogs with them so have made comfortable kennels available for those shooting persons who wish to bring their dogs. We also have an outside drying room available for any wet clothing if the weather should turn nasty .

We can also provide packed lunches and dinners by arrangement.

Shooting supplies will be available at our Country Sports Store (unfortunately gun and cartridge sales are not available). The store which is due to open on site at the end of September will cater for most anglers, hunters, dog owners and shooters' needs.



We can offer you either tailor made wildlife weekends or we can give you hints and tips as to where you can find the special places for nature, locations and wild routes.  To find out more about wild seaons in Dumfries and Galloway please go to the Wild Seasons Website - www.wildseasons.co.uk
