We have had a very productive week at Burnhouse Lochan! The cabin has been sanded and repaired, ready for a fresh coat of varnish before the new kitchen arrives. The benches in the bbq hut have been widened to accommodate our new and extremely comfortable mattresses when catering for future overnight guests. The podiums and pathways are being repaired and let’s not forget the grueling task of weeding. We aim to give our anglers not only a great day fishing but ensure that our beautiful fishery is also maintained to the best possible standards so that you can relax and enjoy the peaceful and stunning surroundings.
