Can I bring a bus party or group to Logie?

We are sorry but we do not have the space or facilities to be able to accommodate bus parties or unannounced groups of more than eight.
Groups wanting to come primarily for a meal are requested to contact the cafe in advance as they regret that they may not be able to serve unannounced groups, particularly at busy times.
Groups who would like to arrange a visit to the gardens are requested to contact Panny Laing, who may be able to offer a guided tour with refreshments in the Long Room.

What are the Steading opening hours?

The Steading opening hours can be found here.

Logie House Gardens, the playground and of course the river walks are always open.

Are all the businesses at the Steading run by Logie Estate?

No! Each business is run individually by its owner(s). We pride ourselves on the excellent and diverse collection of independent craftspeople, enthusiasts and experts that we have managed to bring together at Logie Steading.

Is Logie House open to the public?

Logie House is still very much the Laings’ family home and so is not open to the public. Logie House Gardens, however, are always open with an honesty box at the gate.

Is there access for wheelchair users and the infirm at the Steading?

Yes. Most parts of the Steading are accessible to wheelchair users and the infirm, excepting the upstairs of the Art Gallery and the cafe. Due to the rural location and the nature of the old buildings, there are uneven surfaces particularly in the courtyard to consider. Please refer to our Accessibility page or contact us before your visit to discuss your requirements should you have any concerns.

Are children welcome?

Yes! Several of the shops have items to interest little eyes from the bright crafts at Hellygog to the children’s corner with miniature furniture in the second hand bookshop. We have a big grassy playpark, gardens open and walks of lengths to satisfy all so there’s oodles of space for energetic youngsters to roam. And when they’re all done in, the Olive Tree Cafe have a tasty children’s menu – and tempting treats for grown-ups too!

We have a series of courses, workshops and events throughout the year that are chid-friendly too – from craft workshops during many of the school holidays, to family outdoor theatre productions (such as Roald Dahl) in summer to the Christmas Market on the second weekend in December.

Are dogs welcome?

Yes! Please visit the ‘dogs welcome‘ page for more information.

  2. The fishing is split into two 2 rod beats, Logie and Relugas, with Relugas sub divided into Middle and Top.  Beats can be taken together or separately. Logie is fished Monday to Saturday, Relugas Middle on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and Relugas Top on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Beats change at midnight.

  4. Bio-security is important to the future of the river and anglers are asked to observe protection measures. The Findhorn District Fishery Board Conservation Code will be strictly observed. To summarise: All fish caught up to 14th May inclusive must be released. From 15th May, all salmon over 9 lbs / 4 kg / 28 inches / 72 cm are to be returned.  Below that measurement at least 70% of salmon and 50% of grilse caught should be released and a maximum of 1 salmon and / or 2 grilse per rod per week may be retained. In September all fish are to be returned. No gaffs or tailers are allowed.
  5. The Findhorn District Fishery Board Bio-security measures will be strictly observed and all fishermen in the party must sign the Bio-security Declaration. (Also available at
  6. The Estate recommends that barbless hooks are used, fishermen are in possession of a disgorger and that knotless nets are used. All possible care should be taken when returning fish to the river, they should be handled as little, and gently, as possible and should not be removed from the water.
  7. The catch should be reported at the end of each day of fishing to Logie Estate Office on 01309 611300. If the office is closed, please leave a message on the answering machine with the date, weight and pool. Please also report a nil catch day.
  8. Dogs are allowed on the river but must be kept strictly under control at all times. The Estate reserves the right to ask tenants to remove dogs if they are considered to be out of control.
  9. Rod, line and fly size are dependent on prevailing weather and water conditions and personal choice. In general, maximum rod length needed is 13ft with a size 8 or 9 line, usually floating. Fly sizes range from 6 – 8 in the spring down to 12 or less in summer low water.
  10. Safety must be considered at all times. All beats have a variety of pools with some suitable for most heights of water. Little wading is necessary and river paths are good however the fishing is within the Findhorn gorge, access to some of the pools is quite steep and a degree of rock scrambling is often necessary when playing and landing fish. Please be aware that a reasonable level of fitness and mobility is required. A buoyancy aid for each rod is provided and should be collected from Logie Estate Office on arrival, and returned to the Estate Office (or to the outbuilding opposite if office is closed) on departure. Logie Estate strongly recommends that buoyancy aids are worn when fishing and not doing so is entirely at fishermen’s own risk. Please pay attention at all times, avoid slips and falls, wear appropriate footwear, look out for overhead electricity lines, watch the weather and pay attention to livestock. Take extra care if fishing alone.
  11. Anglers need to supply or hire their own equipment (except buoyancy aids, which are provided).
  12. Ghillieing/tuition is available by on a first come, first served basis. This must be booked in advance with the Estate Office and is subject to availability. A half day ghillieing/tuition is approx. 3 hours, full day approx. 6 hours. Please contact the estate office or check our website for current rates. Rates do not include discretionary tips.
  13. Rod, Reel & Line hire is available by on a first come, first served basis. This must be booked in advance with the Estate Office and is subject to availability. Please contact the estate office or check our website for current rates. A rod, reel and line set is for one person and is subject to a fully refundable damage deposit of £100.
  14. Aside from fishermen, others, including rafters and kayakers, enjoy this stretch of river and mutual respect and consideration is expected.
  15. Bookings are confirmed when initial payment is received. Subsequent changes in dates or number or rods are entirely subject to the Estate’s discretion and to availability. Change of dates, if accepted, incur an administration fee. In the event of a cancellation the tenant must advise Logie Estate immediately, whereupon Logie will endeavour to re-let. If a new tenant can be found the deposit will be returned less any expenses incurred for advertising, office costs, etc., and less any shortfalls in discounted list price. Until such time as a vacancy has been re-let the hirer is responsible for making any further payment by the due dates. Failure to do so may mean that the hirer forfeits any refund if the dates are re-let. If it is not possible to re-let, all payments are still payable by the due date(s). It is unlikely that a refund can be made for a late cancellation. Logie Estate recommends that fishermen take out relevant cancellation insurance.
  16. Subletting fishing is only allowed with Logie Estate’s permission.
  17. Logie Estate reserves the right to immediately withdraw fishing without compensation from anyone who breaks these or associated conditions, or flouts normal standards of behaviour or fishing etiquette.
