Located in beautiful, natural Scottish surroundings, Burnhouse Lochan Fishery is one of Scotland’s finest local fisheries.
Burnhouse is well sign posted off the B816 and has a well maintained private entrance and car park close to the Bothy. Special parking is available for the disabled and OAP’s immediately in front of the main jetty allowing safe access whatever the weather.
A purpose built Scandinavian Bothy with a clean toilet, hot running water and a fully equipped kitchen offers fishermen the opportunity to enjoy their day without being ripped off! Light refreshments are for sale, with tea and coffee available to our regular clientele free of charge. Barbequing of supplied food is catered for on request. Good paths around the whole loch allow fishermen access to the “hot spots” through out the season.
8 purpose built jetties with non slip walkways give the opportunity to cast into deeper water and land bigger fish without struggling at the bank. A boat is available on request; however bank fishing is more suitable. A professional holding tank was installed 5 years ago to ensure correct stocking practices were adhered to. Proper acclimatisation of stocked fish prior to release ensures our customers the best sport every take!

Top tips for social distancing while fishing
Fly Fishing in general is mostly a solitary sport but there could be times when you may come in contact with someone out of your household. Here are top tips for social distancing while fishing:
- Fish locally and avoid long distance travel
- Fish alone or with people from your household
- Keep 2m apart social distancing with other fishermen
- Remember to pre-book to avoid disappointment, particularly in peak season
- Bring your own food and drink to reduce potentially coming into contact with others
- If you are unwell and display the symptoms of Covid-19, stay at home
*These tips are ideas on how to stay safe during the coronavirus pandemic.
