Enjoy Fishing & Shooting Parties in Westruther

Based on 50 acres of the Scottish countryside in the charming village of Westruther, Wedderlie House offers a prime location to experience high-end shooting and fishing breaks in Scotland.

Scottish Fishing Breaks

For avid anglers, Wedderlie House is conveniently situated for fishing trips, located close to River Tweed. The River Tweed is considered one of the world’s great salmon rivers, and its proximity to our estate allows for easy travel to and from the recommended fishing spots. The river’s fame for its salmon run is well-deserved, with multiple river beats accessible throughout the year. From February 1 to November 30, fishing opportunities abound from Monday through Saturday, each season presenting a different perspective.

The Upper Tweed, though water-dependent, becomes a hotspot for summer salmon if early autumn experiences heavy rainfall, culminating in November being the pinnacle month for angling. The river not only offers salmon but also provides excellent brown trout and sea trout fishing, as well as grayling throughout the year. Expect year-round sporting opportunities for anglers of all interests.

Shooting Trips in Scotland

Beyond the riverbanks, the Scottish Borders presents multiple ideal locations for shoots. For those looking to partake in shooting grouse, pheasant, and partridge, the expanse of the countryside surrounding our accommodation in Westruther, near the Lammermuir Hills, offers access to several favoured shooting spots.

Wedderlie House provides convenient accommodation close to many established shooting sites in Westruther and further afield. For those looking to enjoy the traditional sport, the landscape surrounding the estate offers the perfect opportunity for game birds to thrive throughout the year. Groups of 8-10 individuals can venture to the surrounding prime spots for an unforgettable day of game shooting. Open to enthusiasts of all levels of experience, shooting trips allow participants to hone their aim, enjoy the Scottish outdoors, and share experiences with the rest of your party.
