Members may take one guest to fish Chapel and Gasworks Lochans. There are no additional charges but a donation to the Association's funds would be warmly accepted.
These are two small man made lochans on the Glenmuick Estate about 1 mile from Ballater on the road to Loch Muick.
For Chapel enter the estate at the West Lodge and park at the Chapel ruins, the lochan is 250 yards further up the track.
For Gasworks don't enter the estate at West Lodge but carry on along Glenmuick Road past the Crofts Farm and park near to Birch Cottage and walk up to Gasworks Lochan.
BAA stock Chaple with rainbow trout to learn and hone members casting, Adult fishing on Chaple is based on catch and release utilising barbless hooks only, junior members are allowed to keep the occasional fish.
Only two rods per session are normally allowed to fish each lochan. All bookings to be made using the members website booking forms.
Members must identify themselves to any employee of the Estate, water bailiff or Association official if asked to do so. No problems should arise, you have a perfect right to be there but we have had interlopers in the past. Help us by your cooperation and report any strangers or things you feel are unusual.
Dogs MUST be kept on a lead.
