Outdoor Activities


The banks of the River Avon and Livet are popular locations for fishing on the Estate

If your passion is fishing, then a trip to Glenlivet Estate means a visit to the banks of the River Avon and Livet. Both enjoy a fantastic reputation for the quality of the salmon and sea trout fishing.

If you’d like to fish on the Rivers Avon or Livet you’ll need a permit from the respective leaseholder. Some have specific restrictions on their individual beats (such as times and numbers of rods). But these are all explained on their permits.

Permit advice

  • Hotel and sporting tenant beats are normally only available to residents and guests. Non-residents can fish at certain times, subject to availability
  • Fishing permits for community waters are more easily available for non-residents

If you’d like to apply for a permit or get more information, please use the contact numbers in the latest edition of our fishing guide.

Wild brown trout

Wild brown trout fishing can be enjoyed free of charge (no permit required) on the River Conglass, Chabet Water and the Lochy Burn. It is, however, requested that any fish smaller than 7inches be returned without harm.

Stocked Trout Lochs

The Lochy Trout Fishery is stocked with rainbow and brown trout of various weights and sizes.

Opening times and contact

Open April to October for a maximum of 10 rods (fly only with barbless hooks). Rod hire and tuition available by arrangement. Contact 01807 580243 for further details.
