Nestled in a beautiful and quiet spot on the banks of the river Deveron, our cabins and cottages are the perfect place to start your fishing/holiday adventure. We pride ourselves in helping our guests have a fabulous stay and being part of the success of our small family business.
We relocated from Wales in 2019, returning to Scotland, the country that has been the land of my fathers for generations.
Starting off with five cottages and eleven acres of land, we have worked hard to build up and maintain the high standards that our guests and their dog companions expect.
In August 2022 we took over Marnoch Lodge and cottages, one hundred and fifty acres of land and the Marnoch fishing beat. Our aim is to not only develop and expand the accommodation/facilities but also sympathetically improve the land, riverbanks and fishing. We strive to do this not only for our guests today but for all of the local ecosystem and generations to come.
Celebrated for its tranquil beauty the Deveron is around 60 miles long and rises in the remote region known as ‘The Cabrach’ in the heart of the stunningly beautiful Cairngorms national park. As one of Scotland’s hidden gems ‘The Deveron’ is a world famous and prolific brown trout, sea trout and salmon river. In terms of catches it’s returns are consistently the fifth highest in Scotland and it currently holds the record for the heaviest UK fly caught salmon, a staggering 61lbs (27.6Kg) caught by Mrs. Clementina “Tiny” Morison on 21st October 1924.
Since taking over Marnoch Lodge we have undertaken extensive and much needed improvements/alterations to ‘Keepers Cottage and The Coach House’ not least of which has been making the cottage fully wheelchair accessible. We plan to have these works completed later in 2023
The five Cottages/log cabins we have at Deveron Valley Cottages have easy access to the river a short walk through our beautiful woodlands. Longer walks along the bank are ideal for leisure and dog walking.
We have great self-catering accommodation all year and fishing packages available during the season.

Our packages can generally be tailored to suit our guests needs.
We are looking forward welcoming you to our much-loved stretch of the river.
