Mayen Estate, between Rothiemay and Marnoch in Banffshire offers Salmon, Sea-Trout and Brown Trout fly-fishing on two beats of the River Deveron, the Mayen House & Stobiehaugh Beat and the Mains of Mayen & Corniehaugh Beat to our resident guests.

Our mid-river fishing is below the Bogie and Isla tributaries, with the Mayen House & Stobiehaugh Beat stretching for a mile on both banks with 10 named pools.

With well-kept banks, tarred roads, an impressive footbridge allowing access to both banks and an exceptionally comfortable fishing lodge, Mayen Estate is the perfect location for a fishing holiday in the Deveron Valley.

The Mayen House & Stobiehaugh Beat was previously private fishings up until the 2020 season, when we saw 42 salmon and 15 sea trout returned, with 100 rod days. 

We also share the fishing rights on the adjacent Mains of Mayen & Corniehaugh Beat, with limited availability for guests to this stretch of river for one week in every four. 

Angling parties have the choice of five self-catering holiday properties on the Estate, available for short or long stays, depending on seasonal availability. As well as being perfectly situated to fish for Salmon and Sea-Trout on the River Deveron, Guests in our holiday cottages can also enjoy the gardens and grounds and participate in clay pigeon or game shooting.
