FISHING AT LOCHEND CHALETS
The Lake of Menteith is one of Scotland’s premier trout fishing waters, frequently hosting fly-fishing national and World Championship events. The lake is stocked with 30,000 fish every year, all over 1lb in weight, and draws anglers from across Scotland and beyond. Guests in our waterside lodges and chalets often comment that a highlight of their week has been the view from the lounge of fly fisherman casting from their boats into the bay, against a backdrop of Ben Lomond and the Menteith Hills.
World-class fishing on the Lake of Menteith
We have two boats for fishing at Lochend Chalets that can be booked in advance through Chris (07712 596604), or you can rent boats and tackle and hire a gillie for the day just a mile up the road at Menteith Fisheries.
Unfortunately, shore-fishing is prohibited on the Lake of Menteith, but wannabe Tom Sawyers can fish in the Goodie burn, which snakes around the back of the chalets close to the Cook School and bike park.
