Frequently Asked Questions

Please see the answers to a number of frequently asked questions below. If your question is not covered, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. 

Can I fish on a Sunday?

We don’t allow any fishing on a Sunday. We think the fish deserve 1 day off!

Do I need to wear a buoyancy aid?

As stipulated in our Club Rules, we require everyone to wear a buoyancy aid, and if you don’t, you do so at your own risk. If you require one, please ask when purchasing your permit.

Do I need to report back after my days fishing?

It is not a rule, but we would like to hear feedback after you have finished fishing. We have an easy-to-use form that allows you to let us know what you caught. Please see it here. It helps us build up a better idea of our fish stocks.

What do I have to do with the boat when I am finished for the day?

Please leave the boat in a manner as you would like to find it yourself. Bailed of any water, oars in the correct place, take all rubbish with you and lock the boat in the correct berthing area.

The boat isn’t there? What will I do?

Don’t panic, it might just be a human error, and the boat might have been double booked. Please contact where you got the permit from, and they will be happy to help. We have 9 boats, so there are other options to choose from.

Can I use an outboard?

Unfortunately not. We rent the lochs from the Scourie Estate, and they have asked us to implement a ‘No Outboard’ Policy.
