S.E.P.A River Level


Fishing can be enjoyed along the most beautiful stretch of the River Deveron, only a short drive from Aberchirder. The location really is a hidden gem and the opportunity to witness spectacular wildlife, such as otters and birds of prey, is very real. This wonderful part of the riverbank, named Glebe Fishings, is owned by the Church of the Parish of Marnoch and is locally known as 'Manse Pool' or 'Church Water'.


The Deveron has a well deserved reputation as an angling river and is a famous and prolific salmon, sea trout and brown trout fishery. There are runs in the spring, summer and often prolific runs of autumn salmon, through to the season's end on 31st October. 


The 2 rod beat is situated along the mid section of the River Deveron, on the left bank close to the Bridge of Marnoch. Day permits for fishing are available Monday - Saturday or part of excellent value accommodation packages.






All Anglers must:


- read and abide by the Deveron Conservation Code


- sign and act upon the Anglers Declaration Form
