West Ord

One of the main attractions for staying at West Ord is it’s idyllic setting on the banks of the River Tweed. Walking is on your doorstep, everything from an evening stroll to the river, or choose a more ambitious 5 mile loop, and enjoy wonderful wildlife as you go.

We have an all weather tennis court, so look out your racquets and balls, and if you don’t have any we can supply some to get you started!

Fishing Information for West Ord Beat

We have about a mile of single bank salmon and sea trout fishing in tidal water.

The water can all be waded, we don’t provide a boat or a ghillie, but will point you in the right direction, as far as boundaries etc are concerned.

The season is from 1st February to 30th November and there is no fishing on Sundays.

On or before 14th February and on or after 15th September it is fly only.

All salmon must be returned up to 30th June because of spring salmon conservation rules.

All anglers will be asked to complete a Gyrodactylus declaration before fishing.

This states that either you have not used your fishing tackle abroad in the last three months, or you have done so and had it properly sterilised.

If neither of the above then tackle must be sterilised before fishing begins.

All regulations can be found on the Fish Tweed web site www.fishtweed.co.uk

A charge of £20.00 for a full day and £10.00 for half a day will be charged for Salmon and Sea Trout fishing.

There is no charge if fishing for brown trout.

Payment will be taken at time of fishing.
