The Lower Beauly Fishings are located in Strathglass, Inverness-shire, approximately two miles south of the village of Beauly and 15 miles west of Inverness. They are reached via the A862 Inverness to Beauly road and the A831 Beauly to Cannich road. In addition; there is a railway station at Beauly with regular connections to Inverness and the south. 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. During Week 12, two of the three beats (Falls & Home) rotate daily. In recent years Downie beat has also been made available to members at a small additional charge. 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.
In week 12, there are two five-rod groups (A & B). There are five rods available to purchase in Week 12. The successful purchaser will acquire a certificate of ownership for the rods in perpetuity.
In addition to the fishing, a certificate of ownership is available to purchase in week 12 of Cruives Lodge Syndicate.
The available week falls in early May each year, giving an excellent opportunity to catch prime spring salmon averaging between 8lbs and 12lbs, but potentially larger. The rods have been lightly fished in recent years by the selling party. A copy of the Syndicates cyclical calendar is available from the selling agents.
ANNUAL MANAGEMENT CHARGES
Owners are bound to pay a share of annual running costs of the Fishings. The management expense charges are shown in the table above. The annual management expense charge for Cruives Lodge Syndicate is £1,506 per week. VAT is applicable to the annual rod charges, though not the Cruives Lodge charge.
The Conservation of Salmon (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2018 are now in force and impose conservation measures on salmon fisheries.
In 2018 the Beauly system has been allocated category three status, imposing a legal requirement to implement 100% catch and release of salmon. The conservation status will be reviewed annually.
