Edinburgh Angling

Cramond Angling Club

4 Hillhouse Wynd, Kirknewton, West Lothian EH27 8BU

We aim to promote fishing on the River Almond, at a very affordable price. We offer around 3 miles of single (mix left and right) bank fishing on River Almond. The beat is located about 4 miles to the North West of Edinburgh city centre. There is a good access to the river, with a car park being right on the river bank, and bus routes are just minutes away. Main species are brown trout and sea trout. Salmon have also been caught although in a very small number. Catch and release especially for salmon is highly recommended.
