Edinburgh Fishing Shore Excursions

If your cruise itinerary includes Edinburgh as a port of call, we can offer you a variety of fishing shore excursions, with pick-up and drop off from South Queensferry or Leith, through our trusted partner Alba Game Fishing.

Whether you are an experienced fly fisher or a beginner, wanting to try fly fishing for trout on a private loch, or to fish for Atlantic salmon on one of the world's most famous salmon rivers, or to get 'up close and personal' with Scotland's biggest freshwater predator, we have a fishing experience to suit.

For trout fishers we offer an exclusive 6 hour excursion to fish for trout on a private loch, offering lively fly fishing for brown and rainbow trout.

The fish are free-rising and can be caught using dry flies, small nymphs or midge pupa. The setting is rural and peaceful, ideal for beginners or pros.

For salmon fishers we offer an exclusive excursion to fly fish for Atlantic salmon on the iconic River Tweed, one of the 'Big 4' Scottish salmon rivers, which has provided an important historic legacy to fly fishing and salmon fishing world-wide.

Pricing for this excursion will be dependent on availability and pricing on different beats of the River Tweed, which is highly variable. 

We also offer an exclusive excursion to fish for pike on a beautiful private loch set in a wilderness. It's the perfect stage for unparalleled sport (with fly, bait or lure), with this magnificent predator. These pike average 8-9 lbs with 15-20 lbs not uncommon.

Guiding will be provided by an Orvis/Sage or SGAIC endorsed fly fishing guide. Our packages include pick-up from and return to your ship, premium tackle hire, waders (if required), fishing permits, lunch and refreshments.

Our Edinburgh shore excursions are designed for single anglers or pairs, but we may also be able to cater for larger groups, so please enquire.

All our excursions, but particularly salmon fishing on the River Tweed, are subject to availability, so advance booking is essential. For further information or to book your excursion, please send us an enquiry.
