The Wardend Fishery is a highly regarded trout fishery and sits in a stunning rural setting to the south of Elgin.

Extending to about twelve acres, the fishery includes 4 stock ponds and a wonderfully designed 5 acre loch which over the years has been stocked with rainbow, brown and blue trout. The loch sits nicely at the foot of two hills which offer shelter for the site. Overlooking the loch is The Lodge; an attractive 3 bedroom timber lodge built by Caber Construction from Siberian Larch. Spacious accommodation is provided over one and a half storeys and on the ground floor includes a vestibule, hall, open plan kitchen / living room, wet room, bedroom and office / 3rd bedroom. On the first floor, there is a walk-in wardrobe, bathroom and an additional double bedroom. A delightful verandah and balcony enjoy wonderful views over the loch. The Lodge is double glazed and is heated using oil central heating.

Sitting nearby is the Boathouse which is constructed using a steel portal frame clad using box profile steel sheeting. Here, the accommodation is provided over a single storey and includes a hall, open plan kitchen / living room, double bedroom and bathroom. There is also a useful garage / store. The Boathouse is also double glazed and centrally heated.

There is also a useful timber fishing shop / office whilst ample parking for 20 or more vehicles is provided in a private car park.

The Fishery
In recent years, the fishery has very much been run as a lifestyle business as opposed to chasing every last pound of profit. in addition to day ticket sales, there are currently 15 season ticket holders (paying £750 / annum) with annual takings in the region of £30,000 ( the 5 year average is £29,776).

The property offers prospective purchasers a very exciting opportunity to acquire a home and business combined with plenty of scope for further development.
