Frandy is a fly fishing upland reservoir based in the picturesque Ochil hills on Gleneagles Estate, Perthshire. Fly fishing for rainbow, brown & blue trout in Scotland at its very best.

The reservoir is well known for its scenic beauty and wide and varied bird life, including Osprey, Buzzard, Hen Harrier, Peregrine Falcon, Merlin and Red Kite. Part of the reservoir’s attraction is its feeling of remoteness although it is still very accessible, being just 45 minutes by road from both Edinburgh and Glasgow, and 20 minutes from both Stirling and Perth. The reservoir is stocked on a weekly basis with a policy of more fish going in than out throughout the season with very high quality Rainbows, Browns, and Blues, all of which are female and triploid and complement the indigenous Brown trout population very well.

With a maximum depth of over 100 ft, shallowing off in many heather-clad bays to between 2 and 8 ft, the fishing is often very visual with an abundance of terrestrial insects


Frandy is equipped with all the amenities expected from the modern day angler, but at the same time we are being careful not to affect the fishery’s natural beauty and immediate surroundings.

There is a large car park situated beside the lodge and reservoir making it easy to carry the ever-increasing quantity of fishing tackle to the boats or bank, and assistance is available for anyone who requires it.

We have a range of reasonably priced flies and lures for sale including the favourite Frandy ‘killers’  that have proved successful in past seasons. This should ensure that your fishing at Frandy is as enjoyable (and inexpensive) an experience as possible.
