Philiphaugh News Winter 2019


The Cauld And Salmon Viewing Centre

The first month of 2019 has been surprisingly mild. This has benefitted farm livestock and saved on feed costs. River levels have stayed low after high water in December. The hydro station continues to generate, even at relatively low water with just one turbine in operation.


The salmon run has ended and it seems figures from the new fish counter show numbers down to a third of former years. Reasons for this decline are varied and generating much research to understand the cause.

Philiphaugh Gardens

Primroses and tete a tetes are for sale, along with azaleas. Orders for bedding plants are being taken.



The gardens are open Monday to Friday 8-4 and weekends by appointment.


Why not come for a walk and witness the beautiful autumn colours. The Waterwheel café will welcome you for lunch or coffee to refresh you after your walk.
