A prestigious stretch of the River Brora with productive fishing has hit the market for £825,000.

Lower Brora Fishings comprises three miles of left bank fishing, with a 10-year annual average catch return of 124 salmon and 18 sea trout, in a beautiful, peaceful Highland setting.

The landholding extends to about 115.9 hectares with amenity and mixed woodland, crofted land and common grazings. The fishings has a comprehensive list of weekly tenants, generating a useful income.

Some 33 named pools divided between four separate beats make up the stretch of river, with two Upper and two Lower, offering some exceptional fly water with the ability to fish at varying water heights.

Four rods are accommodated on a daily rotation with the south bank, such that anglers can enjoy plentiful access to the river (north bank) without ever fishing opposite anyone.

The current owner has engaged in an ongoing programme of riverbank maintenance as well as undertaking in-river reinstatement of croys and groynes where permission from SEPA has been granted.
