Fishing Holiday in Scotland and a Luxury Hotel Getaway
A Fishing Holiday in Scotland at The Buccleuch Queensberry Arms
The thrill of casting a line more your thing than racing down a hillside? More in to watching the world go by whilst hoping for a bite? As the fishing season fast approaches in our little corner of Scotland, we take a look at a clever new App that is the perfect tool for that Fishing holiday in Scotland you have been meaning to take!
Conservation issues in Scotland, and indeed over fishing globally has seen new legislation come in to place across the UK. The River Nith, which is the closest fishing spot to The Buccleuch Queensberry Arms Hotel is impacted by these new rules, whereby any salmon you catch within the 2016 season you have to return. However we don’t want that to take the fun out of your fishing holiday to our luxury country hotel, which is where the new App FishFigure comes in.
This interesting little App sizes your fish from a photograph, so rather than taking it home and weighing, you can get all the information you need right there on the river bank. All lengths and weights are calculated using historic scales, so of course sizes may vary, however it’s a great way to keep a track of the seasons progress. The built in Logbook allows you to store your catch information and automatically logs the species, date, time caught and region. There is also space to log any bate information, weather details and of course plenty of space for pictures of your fish from every angle!
Year on year previous guests of the BQA Hotel return to fish the River Nith taking advantage of a welcome break and fishing holiday in Scotland. We don’t want this year to be any different. Our beautiful corner of Dumfries and Galloway is a pull for those from all over the world and Drumlanrig Castle is only a 10 minute drive, with excellent fishing spots all along the River Nith. Our fishing package is £40 per person per night in one of our Classic Rooms and includes a full Scottish Breakfast to get you ready for the day. Check out our Offers page for full details
Our restaurant also serves up the best local produce, with plenty of fish on the menu! We are sure that although there is a strict catch and return policy this year, our guests can still have a great season and that FishFigure can help them on their way.
You can buy your fishing ticket from the hotel or contact us here for more information on our Fishing Package.
