Dindinnie access

3rd July 2021

Warning to all members! If the gate at the farm at Dindinnie is closed with sign saying “Cattle being moved Do Not Enter” This means “DO NOT ENTER” remember please this is a working farm. An incident on Friday nearly resulted in an injury to stocksman.  If this happens again there is a possibility of the gate being padlocked permanently with access then only by walking up to wee dam. Not a situation anyone would want!! Members flouting this rule are liable to be barred.

16th March 2021

Warning!! The field leading down to where the White Loch boat is moored is not passable even for 4wd vehicles. I am in touch with Stair Estates to try and arrange an alternative location and will keep you advised.

A number of members have been asking about day and buddy tickets.  At present we have no way of issuing these but this will be looked at as restrictions are adjusted.

2021 permits

11th February 2021

Any returning or potential new members please contact me at or phone 07734915640 for details of how to buy permits for the new season as it is unlikely The Sports Shop will be open prior to the start of the season due to the current covid restrictions.

Discarded tackle!!

2nd October 2020

The committee have received notification from the Stair Estates factor reporting another find of discarded fishing tackle at Lochinch. This is the latest of a number of finds and has resulted in the death of a wild bird. We have asked if we could get the items to see if they are recognised by anybody.

These incidents could result in a loss of the pike fishing for all!!

Please make sure you take home all your bits and pieces and also lift any other items you find. I appreciate it may not be our members but it is our members who will suffer.

Also, if anyone is willing to carryout a litter lift around these Lochs, please get in touch with the committee and we will organise something.
