A two-bedroom cottage with a beat of salmon and trout fishings on the River Don
This is a lot that combines a two-bedroom cottage with an attractive beat of salmon and trout fishings on the River Don.
Nethermill Cottage Set back from the minor public road overlooking the river Don, this cottage is of stone construction with a harled and painted exterior under a pitched slate roof. The accommodation comprises sitting room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
It is occupied by the assistant gamekeeper of the Towie shoot until February 2017.
The cottage has a private water supply and is heated by an oil-fired boiler. There is an adjoining shed and kennel. This cottage has an EPC rating of F.
The Towie Beat of Salmon Fishings Leading downstream from the hamlet of Towie, the Towie salmon fishings comprise circa 2.4 miles of single (right) bank salmon and sea trout fishing on the River Don.
A pretty stretch of relatively fast flowing, streamy water meandering through attractive open countryside, there are 12 named pools.
The Towie beat fishes best on dropping water following heavy rainfall. Whilst the occasional fish may be caught in spring, the beat fishes best in appropriate water conditions from mid-summer until the end of the season on 31 October.
In addition to salmon and grilse, the occasional sea trout is caught.
The Don is also famed throughout its length for the quality of its brown trout fishing. The Towie beat is no exception with 1lb to 2lbs fish frequently being caught.
There is a fishing hut situated close to the Bulwark pool, and another smaller one beside Ley Dyke.
As the salmon fishing rights have been let to the Ballater Angling Association on a year to year basis with the vendor retaining house rods for his own/his guests use from time to time, the beat has been lightly fished.Read all
