If your passion is fishing, then a trip to Glenlivet Estate means a visit to the banks of the River Avon and Livet. Both enjoy a fantastic reputation for the quality of the salmon and sea trout fishing.
The River Avon (pronounced locally as A’an) and its tributaries including the Livet are part of a network of rivers and burns that rise in the Cairngorms and flow through Strath Avon to the River Spey.
The Avon supports some of the highest altitude salmon in Scotland, with good numbers of juvenile salmon occurring at over 600m altitude. The River Livet is one of the best spawning and nursery rivers in Scotland. A site in the upper Livet was found to have one of the highest salmon parr densities recorded in Scotland in 2018.
