Mount Falcon Country House Hotel

Over the years, both expert and novice anglers have caught their first fish of the season, or their first ever Salmon, in Mount Falcon waters.  Male or female, young or not so young, you are most welcome to join us in maintaining that tradition. To help, we can supply all your tackle and introduce you to waters to suit all abilities and tastes.  And we have ghillies on hand, to either illustrate new techniques, or offer advice on improving those you already have.

Opt for a full day experience and you will enjoy a delicious picnic lunch on one of the islands and even the chance to cook your catch! More Information >
