Loch Belivat

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Fishing update - Loch Belivat is closed for the 2020 season.

The Scottish Government announced that fishing may resume in Scotland from Friday 29th May, subject to certain travel restrictions. Travel from your home must be in line with Scottish Government guidelines. We have looked closely at reopening Loch Belivat. The recent guidance has been clear that equipment should not be shared, and that boats should not be used. We have had similar advice from our insurers. Unfortunately, Loch Belivat will remain closed for now.


Brown Trout fishing is available on the beautiful Loch Belivat from April to September.

The loch is served by a single rowing boat and you will be the only ones fishing during each session, with an average catch per outing of 2 fish and an average weight of about 1½ lbs.  Catch and release is encouraged and we do ask for all fish under 12" long to be put back. The bag limit is 2 fish per rod per session.  All fishing is by fly only. Surrounded by mature woodland, the loch feels secluded and peaceful despite being located just off the A939.

From the beginning of May until the end of August the fishing is split into a Day Session from 9:00am to 5:30pm and an Evening Session from 6pm to dusk. The cost is £30 per session for 2 rods. To book a session or for more information please Contact the Estate Office for more information.
