Big '4in4' challenge

Thank you for arranging the big 4in4 challenge for myself and my father. We both had a fantastic time fishing on the four most famous rivers in Scotland. We could not fault the organisation of our trip. From the initial contact right through to the end of our holiday, your company has been a pleasure to deal with. The scenery was magnificent, accommodation was top-notch, the fishing venues superb and our guide David… well we have made a new friend and to top it off, we have now both caught salmon in Scotland. We would highly recommend your services.

Amazing couple of days!

I just wanted to thank you for the amazing couple of days you put together for us at short notice on the River Tay. The whole family enjoyed their experience. The guides were all professional and the lunches were just amazing. My mother commented that it was the best food she had eaten since being in Scotland. My brother and I​ will definitely be returning in 2020.

Professional & Personal Service

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team. We had a fantastic week in Scotland and my husband Neil thoroughly enjoyed his few days salmon fishing on the River Tay. The accommodation was outstanding and the service that you and your company deliver was both professional and personal throughout. We hope to return in the not too distant future

A fabulous week on the River Dee

I would just like to thank you for putting together a fabulous week on the Dess Beat of the River Dee. Anna at the lodge was brilliant and the food and accommodation superb and the ghillie Eion’s knowledge was second to none. I even managed to catch my first Scottish salmon! Thank you for arranging a great Scottish adventure.

- Mr Docking / Monday, April 22, 2019 -

We had such a fantastic time in Perthshire we just had to extend by a few days!

Thank you for arranging a holiday that neither Greg nor I will ever forget! The accommodation was outstanding. The fishing beat and lodge was ace and Martin our guide was patient and a true gentleman. Greg even managed to catch his first ever salmon. We would not hesitate to recommend the services of Salmon Fishing Holidays Scotland. Your company has been professional from the outset and we look forward to returning one day

Scottish Adventure

From Edinburgh to the Highlands of Scotland and the west coast you put together an amazing holiday for us and our hats go off to you. From the hotels to the ghillies every aspect of our holiday was taken care of and was hassle free.​ We can't recommend your company enough and will be speaking highly of you to our friends in the USA.

A Great Week On the River Dee

I don't know how to thank you enough for organising such a fantastic week on the River Dee. The lodge and food were excellent. The ghillie although a dry old bugger, was a gentleman and we finally managed to catch our first Scottish springers. We can not wait to return next year.

- John Edwards / Monday, April 22, 2019 -

Awesome Time!

We had an awesome time on our fishing trips. Both Jim and Russell were excellent guides and uniquely qualified in both their regions. We would highly recommend them to anyone! A special thank you for all your help in organizing our trip. The accommodations were great and very convenient. We will be back in the future and will look forward to working with you again for another adventure!!

- Mr & Mrs Greene / Wednesday, July 25, 2018 -

Thank you

Thank you for looking after us all so well, your attention to detail, and your knowledge of the Scottish Salmon fishing opportunities, was,- we found, - second to none !! Every good wish for the continued success, of SFHS, with just enough time to allow you both to do some fishing as well !! I hope to return in the not too distant future.

The most amazing and inspirational week

I would like to thank you so very much for what was the most amazing, relaxing and inspirational week I had on the River Tay chasing the spring run. From the second I made contact with Salmon Fishing Holidays Scotland, with detailed correspondence leading up to the big week, the week could not have flowed any better. The transfer from the airport and hotel to the fishing venues, the ghillie’s and the amazing lunches, were all truly top quality. Samantha’s and Silja advice about the river, terminal tackle and casting, has improved my fishing and confidence incredibly. I plan on returning back to Scotland very shortly.

- Martin Docking / Tuesday, May 8, 2018 -

Wonderful days in Scotland

I just wanted to thank you Samantha and your team, for the very good organisation of our four-day corporate trip on the River Tay. Every aspect of our trip, from accommodation to transfers was perfect and for everybody a great experience and wonderful days in Scotland.

- Mr Poulsen / Sunday, April 29, 2018 -

professional & unique salmon fishing experience

SFHS provided our party with a professional service throughout for our booking. With excellent information in regards to the beat, ghillie and also a map/plan of how to actually get there (which was definitely needed). I certainly recommend their services if you want a highly professional, unique salmon fishing experience.

- Allan Sinclair / Saturday, April 14, 2018 -

A great experience!

I purchased a voucher for a day’s guided salmon fishing with lunch for my husbands Christmas. I was very impressed with the service, from ordering the voucher to his experience on the day. Samantha kept in touch with me and even enquired about what he liked to eat and drink! My husband was picked up in an immaculate 4x4 vehicle and was very well looked after. He enjoyed his day fishing, ending with a visit to the Inn to share the tales of "the one that got away"! Great service and would definitely recommend SFHS.

Spring fishing on Tulchan

I would like to say thanks to Samantha and Sandy for organising a perfect week’s springer fishing on Tulchan. After booking four rods last autumn on another beat the owner cancelled (!!) our booking mid-January but Samantha and Sandy responded immediately, putting their excellent connections into play so that we ended up on Tulchan. Top job! (Top Beat) Summing up these guys run a highly professional, excellently networked family business with a little bit of extra – called personal touch. SFHS is a 5-star company for 5-star fishing breaks. I can highly recommend them.

- Stuart Longhurst / Wednesday, April 11, 2018 -

We can highly recommend this fishing trip

Samantha & Sandy are lovely people. Last summer my girlfriend and I were there for one week. We had a lot of fun! We liked Samantha’s lunch, O man… she gives you the full package. My girlfriend was struggling with her casting and Samantha decided to take her to one side on the second night and give her some guidance even though this wasn’t a guided trip. This really helped Amanda as then she had the confidence to fish the rest of the week. I can highly recommend this fishing trip to everyone. Thanks guys for the lovely week.

We are still floating from such an amazing holiday

We are still floating from such an amazing holiday. The accommodation was 5 star, from the attentive staff, to the mouthwatering food & wine. Our salmon fishing with our guide Jimmy was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Such stunning autumn colours. We have already decided to return. Thank you for making our wildest dreams possible.

- Mr & Mrs Fessey / Tuesday, October 10, 2017 -

Thank you

I have no more than words of thanks for everything SFHS did for us. You are great and we will not hesitate to recommend your services because it was incredible. Even though my family don’t speak English we have all had a trip to remember. Thanks again, Martina

- Martina Borzi / Wednesday, October 4, 2017 -

Thank You SFHS

Thank you SFHS! Our weekend was absolutely perfect in every way. Andrew has referred to it as a weekend from his wildest dreams and we both thoroughly enjoyed. The accommodation was outstanding and Andy was the perfect guide. He even shared a glass of red wine with me at the end of the 2nd day that he had tucked away in his hut!! I would not hesitate to recommend SFHS to anyone. Your help and guidance has been thorough and prompt from day one. Thank you for helping me plan such a special and perfect weekend, I could never have done it without you!

- Bethan Gough / Tuesday, August 15, 2017 -

Just a final note to express our appreciation to you and Sandy for a job well done!

Just a final note to express our appreciation to you and Sandy for a job well done. Our pickup was early and we got off from Edinburgh on time. The SUV was perfect and the driver entertaining. The fishing and guides were great, patient, and good teachers. The additional bonus that they each brought a dog was a surprise. I now know why so many guides have a dog😊. The Tay is a great and historic river which I really enjoyed. Tight Lines and great casts. Doc Nate

Service is first class

As a group of five, we had six days salmon fishing with Salmon Fishing Holidays Scotland. All I can say is “Excellent, splendid and the service is first Class!”

- Hans Svedberg / Tuesday, May 30, 2017 -


We've just had a brilliant opening to the 2017 Tay salmon season at Newtyle, organised by Sandy and Sam of SFHS. Cooked breakfast and hot coffee under a marquee on arrival, a dram for us all with the piper, then gourmet soup, stew and a wonderful selection of smoked meats at lunchtime. Almost forgot about the fishing - which was great fun too

- John Douglas / Wednesday, January 18, 2017 -

A pretty good burger!!

"I have booked twice with Sam & Sandy, both times were thoroughly enjoyable. I received a personal yet professional service, some great advice and furthermore gained two valuable friends. I highly recommend booking with these guys, they have a real passion for angling and cook a pretty good burger!!"

- Phil Rennie / Monday, October 24, 2016 -

A Lovely Couple

"As a relative novice to salmon fishing I was keen to expand my knowledge and it was suggested that I look at Scottish salmon Fishing Surgery website. I found it really useful and still do. I subsequently met Sandy and Sam and found their enthusiasm and passion for salmon fishing to be infectious. They are a lovely couple and I would urge anyone thinking about using their services to do so."

- David Sands / Monday, September 19, 2016 -

Experience of a Lifetime

"I had an experience of a lifetime when I booked my salmon fishing holiday with SFHS. The SFHS team delivered on everything that they promised and more. Cannot wait for my next salmon fishing foray."

- Les Routlidge / Thursday, September 8, 2016 -

Great Food!

- Philip Hall / Tuesday, August 30, 2016 -

Hooked For Life

"As being a relative novice to salmon fishing, SFHS took care of all my requirements. Their customer service was second to none as was their tuition. The SFHS guides were so patient and made me feel at ease immediately. I finally managed to get my salmon rod bent. Definitely hooked for life!"

- Grant Conway / Wednesday, August 17, 2016 -
