Booking Terms and Conditions

Call Us: +44 (0)7867895354

By booking the services of The Highland Angling Experience you fully understand the following terms and conditions.


Payment can be made by debit/credit cards using out payment system, or bank/wire transfers.

We require payment in full to book your day, 50% of which will be non refundable unless otherwise agreed (see cancellations for details)


When a booking is made it is on the understanding that you have fully read and accepted our terms and conditions of business.

All bookings will be confirmed via Email.

All children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a responsible paying adult/guardian.

Fishing activities do carry some inherent risks and the risks involved will be explained by your guide in more detail on the day. By making a booking you agree to listen and act on all safety instructions given by your guide. It is a clear booking condition that you fully accept the hazards involved in the fishing environment and your engagement with potentially dangerous activities.


If The Highland Angling Experience makes the decision to cancel a coaching or guiding session due to extreme weather conditions beyond their control, for example very high winds making casting dangerous, or water conditions/levels on rivers in spate, or for any other reason; then a full refund minus costings will be given or an alternate date offered, whichever is acceptable to the client.

Almost all fishing guides are self employed and rely on this as their main source of income. Upon booking your day the guide cannot accept any further work opportunities on that day, therefore cancelling your date seriously limits their chance of earning money on that day.

If a client wishes to cancel a booking a minimum of 28 days notice must be given in writing i.e email.

If less than fourteen days notice is given then only an alternate date will be offered.

Any rearranged bookings after a cancellation must take place within a twelve month period.

If fishing permits, catering or any other arrangements have been made for a client’s booking, which has resulted in costs to The Highland Angling Experience which cannot be recovered from any third party supplier and that booking is cancelled for any reason then those costs will still be chargeable and will be recovered from the client.

If conditions are unsuitable on the river we will do our best to reschedule an alternative fishing on the day. This may incur an extra permit costs.

For all trips currently booked:
If customers are unable to make an activity due to official travel restrictions put in place due to the Coronavirus virus, all payments will be credited to a future trip.  Valid for 24 months. Clients should forward written evidence with regards to official travel advice.
If customers are fearful of traveling and pull out voluntarily, no refund is given and we would offer guests a 25% discount on a future trip.  Valid for 24 months. Compensation for trips cancelled under these circumstances should be handled through the clients travel insurer and Active Highs would assist by working with the insurer by providing vital information.
If customers are traveling to Scotland from a High Risk area the British Government are recommending that upon arrival to the UK they self isolate. Active Highs therefore will reserve the right to try to reschedule an amended date for the booking which falls within these guidelines.
Because many deposits and final payments for trip packages are non-refundable, it is highly recommended that you purchase trip insurance in the event that you have to cancel, postpone or reschedule your trip for any reason. Please be aware that this is the only way that Active highs Ltd can assist you with compensation for a cancelled trip.


The Highland Angling Experience cannot be held liable for any conditions out with our reasonable control.
