    Local information

    • The Kinnaber Fishings are situated on the lower reaches of the River North Esk, a river noted for its long productive season and historically having one of the strongest runs of spring salmon of any river in Scotland. The whole beat consists of streamy pools situated above the mean spring tide mark. The Kinnaber beat is sandwiched between the famous Morphie Fishings and the estuarial Nab, a stretch of water historically fished by coble. Kinnaber is often referred to as the ‘Gateway to the River North Esk'. The river forms the boundary between Angus and Kincardineshire, two counties renowned for both agriculture and field sports.
