Fishing on Dunalastair

You receive a free fishing permit on arrival at your cottage (during the fishing season) that covers trout fishing on Dunalastair Loch and trout and pike fishing on the north bank of the River Tummel from Kinloch Rannoch bridge to half a mile upstream of the bridge at Tummel Bridge village.

On Dunalastair Estate, while you are staying in the cottages, boats are available for free for your use on Dunalastair Loch (fly fishing only) but you do need to reserve them in advance by ringing Jim Shankland on 01882 632 354 or visiting him at Lochgarry Cottage.

Non-residents can rent boats from Jim for fishing on Dunalastair Loch at £30 per day.  To book: 01882 632 354 

A local byelaw forbids fishing from the bank on Dunalastair Loch.
We allow electric outboards only, however we do not provide these. Lifejackets are provided and should be worn.
