So many good reasons to come and stay.

The South Esk rises high in the Grampian Mountains above the Glen Clova Hotel and drains the wilderness areas of the Glen Doll before winding its way to the North Sea at Montrose via Montrose Basin.


Salmon are present in the river when the season opens on February 16 but they are slow to pass upstream in low temperatures due to the dam at Kinnaird (near Brechin) and other obstacles further upstream. Once the temperature rises to 6oC and the water levels are suitable, fresh fish quickly run upstream. The middle reaches usually enjoy their sport around mid-March. In a normal year, the second week of April will be the arrival of fresh springers in Glen Clova. May is the best month for spring salmon fishing. Given water, grilse can be expected in summer floods from June onwards and later in the season. Some larger salmon arrive until the season closes on October 31.
