Updated 9 August 2020.

  • Further details relaxing fishing restrictions have been advised by the government. BAC members may now fish the Firth waters unrestricted, and all beats on the Beauly Holiday Park banks – beats 1, 2 ,3 and 4 plus Beat 1 from the left hand bank.
    Please do not use the Beauly Holiday Park car spaces as these are fully utilised with the Park’s visitors.

    The Firth only can be fished by non-members. The usual hygiene routines should also be observed where there are any hard surfaces used by many fishers – gates, posts etc. This should be observed for all beats.

  • Ticket availability: Fishpal tickets for the Firth are available for fishers, the club will not be offering tickets for the River Beats for the remainder of this season.

  • Junior Fishing days are postponed, we will advise when it may be safe to begin them, hopefully later in the season.
  • Loch Watten cancelled. Due to COVID-19 this competition has been cancelled for this year – we hope to be able to run this next May 2021

    Beauly Angling Club provides members with affordable access to river and firth for Salmon and Sea Trout.

    The club was founded during the Second World War by the late Simon Fraser, Lord Lovat, and became known as the Beauly Angling Club in the mid 1980s.

    Our fishing on the River Beauly extends downstream from Lovat Bridge to Wester Lovat; this equates to around 7 miles of bank fishing with ten named pools.

    The fishing on the inner half of the Beauly Firth is also included in club membership offering saltwater fly fishing, spinning and bait fishing predominately for Sea Trout. We have a number of exchange tickets set up with other Angling Clubs across Scotland.

    We will have exchange tickets and also offer concessionary waters – please see the menu from the Members & Club Information pages after the Season begins

    The club holds a number of friendly competitions for members held on different waters and regularly fields teams in inter-club competitions during the season, please see the Competitions page.

    In 2014 we launched a junior member development programme aimed at bringing the next generation of anglers into the sport. We plan to have more Junior Fishing Days in 2020

    Who can join?

    The club is open to potential members from all over the Highlands & Islands. We would particularly welcome applications from potential junior members. Associate membership is available for other UK residents, and permits are available for visitors to our waters
