The River Tweed

At 97 miles long, Tweed (-Tradition requires the definite article to be dropped – thank you Tweedbeats!-) carries a rich history that far outweighs its relatively short length.

Famed as one of, if not the, primary salmon fishing river in the UK, Tweed runs a very long season from 1st February and closes on 30th November. The runs tend to peak in May, then again in October and Early November, though fish run the river year round.

Traditionally split into four sections, upper, middle, lower and bottom we are well placed for travel to all 3 stretches, but particularly middle, lower and bottom.

Of course Tweed can also be enjoyed by those seeking to explore the many peaceful walking paths that follow its contoured edge, or by those in motor vehicles, as many scenic roads run alongside this most famous of Borders Rivers.
