Welcome to Scotguides
Guided Pike Fishing at Portmore Loch, Peebles
Scotguides offers the thrilling experience of fishing for pike with both lure and fly. The setting is a spectacular, private, 110 acre loch on a mature Scottish Border estate nestled at the foot of the Moorfoot Hills. We are only 25 minutes drive from the beautiful city of Edinburgh and only a few minutes from the famous border town of Peebles
This is a turn up and fish experience – all rods, reels, terminal tackle and life jackets are supplied.
The lodge is fully equipped with all the facilities you’ll need for your day. You can have lunch on the deck and admire the view or if the weather is a bit inclement, you can sit inside with a hot drink or a dram.
The loch holds an excellent stock of hard fighting pike from the smallest up to personal bests! The fishery is run on a strict catch and release basis. The weight of your fish will be estimated to ensure a swift return to the water.
Trips will last 4 hours although longer trips can be arranged. Lunch and local pick up can also be organised at extra cost. Just bring yourself, suitable clothing including waterproofs, a hat and a pair of polaroid/polarised sunglasses.
For a truly memorable day and the possibility of a 30lb+ fish of a lifetime, give it a try. The fish are there and we’ll do our utmost to help you get them out!

Have fished since a laddie all over the Uk and abroad and this has to be one of the best experiences ever, great fishing, great atmosphere, and stories to rival Roald Dahl, a great day out!
I was up at portmore about 3weeks ago through a recommendation. And I wasn’t disappointed. Stevie was an excellent guide and took me to all the places most would keep to themselves. Between us we had fish ranging from 6 lbs to 15 lbs. The best 3 hours pike fishing I’ve had in a long time and so well worth the money. Thanks and best wishes Stevie.
Best pike fishing Iv ever done,what a cracking place,they fight harder than any Iv caught before and none stop very very exciting fishing!
