Inverness airport has regular flights to other parts of the United Kingdom.
The Lower River Beauly Fishings are regarded as the prime beat of the Beauly system, accounting for around 60% of all salmon caught. The Fishings extend to over three miles on both banks of the River.
The Lower River is divided into three beats; Falls, Home and Downie. The three beats rotate daily. Each beat has its own comfortable, log-cabin style fishing hut.
There are three experienced ghillies employed by the syndicate, one for each beat.
The Fishings are divided into 28 time-share weeks, each composed of three five-rod groups (A, B & C). Six separate five-rod groupings are available to purchase. The successful purchaser will acquire a certificate of ownership for the rod/s in perpetuity.
In addition to the fishing, two separate certificates of ownership are available to purchase in Cruives Lodge Syndicate in week 15 and in week 17.
