House of Glennie

Near Huntly, Aberdeen City & Shire

House of Glennie, a unique, traditional, Scottish home set in the rolling hills of Aberdeenshire on the banks of the Deveron, one of Scotland’s premier salmon rivers.

Glennie is the perfect destination for families of all ages and house parties who want a traditional Scottish holiday.

The Glennie beat itself is, in addition, one of the best beats on the Deveron.

The house has a mile of winding, picturesque, well-kept river at the foot of the garden. It is a 2 rod beat with 10 named pools. Around 100 salmon are caught each year.

Glennie is unique in offering fishing within a short walk of the house, ensuring ease of access and the flexibility to return to the house for breaks in the day. Lunch can be taken in the charming fishing hut or in the main house.

The fishing at Glennie can be taken with the house, but if it has been booked already, there is always fishing available on the seven beats nearby. Extra fishing can also be taken with the Glennie beat to give more space and variety.

For later bookings, in the event that the fishing at Glennie is booked, fishing will still be available, but on neighbouring beats. Please book early to guarantee fishing at Glennie.
