The Cauld And Salmon Viewing Centre

The river continues to be extremely low and hence no salmon have been seeing migrating upstream. If a flood occurs later in the month we then expect to see fish moving once again.

 

As a result of the low river level only one turbine has been ticking over producing about 15kw/h

 

In the Salmon Viewing Centre one of our live cameras has been resited on a swallow's nest. Watch the mother swallow feeding her 4 babies.

 

Philiphaugh Gardens

 

In the gardens there are still some hanging baskets for sale and a small number of bedding plants.

 

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

The estate has a number of beautiful walks at any time. Please collect a leaflet or consult the map in the salmon viewing centre for route information.
