Cawdor Castle is one of Scotland’s most famous castles because of its connection to Macbeth. It is also home to the Lairds Beat of Cawdor Castle as well as the Drynachan stream.

The Ballachrochin, Daless, and Dalbuie Beats make up the Drynachan water. It features nearly 6 miles of double bank and half a mile of single bank, 28 named pools, 3 cottages, and enough fishing for 9 rods.

Cawdor Castle’s Banchor Beat, also known as the Lairds Beat, is served by a beautiful pedestrian suspension bridge that stretches for almost three quarters of a mile in total length. Salmon fishing at the Banchor Beat is not for anyone easily intimidated because it requires casting lines from the tops and sides of enormous boulders.

After hooking a fish, bringing it to the net requires a great deal of caution. There are a total of 2 rods available for each fishing session at the location during the months of April and September. a day cost can secure the services of a ghillie with experienced on the River Findhorn.
