Reduced cost accommodation

At this time of year (end of September) the tourist season is winding down and many hotels and guest houses are willing to reduce their prices, particularly if in conjunction with some sort of package involving a stay of five or six days.

This is also the time of year when salmon are to be found in the Annan (at last!!) The salmon catch on the Annan doesn't appear very startling until you realise that about 97% of those fish are caught in the last six weeks of the season - in other words now!!

Put these two things together and you can probably get 5 or 6 nights accommodation together with 5 days fishing on the Annan at quite reasonable cost.

Some businesses are willing to provide the visiting angler with a variety of fishing/accommodation packages, one of which should suit you.

They are in order from North to South.

Marvig Guest House, Academy Road, Moffat, DG10 9HW. This is rather a nice Guest House on the main street in Moffat, .

Annandale Arms Hotel, High Street, Moffat, DG10 9HF. Very nice hotel, very nice people, and just happens to be my local on a Tuesday night (Don't let that put you off, I don't usually get too noisy!!)

Red House, Wamphray, MOFFAT, DG10 9NF. Now B & B instead of a hotel
Two letting rooms which can be organised as double, twin or family. Totally relaxed about Sea Trout anglers coming in at 4am - which is rare. Telephone No. 01576 470470.

The Red House access is from the all purpose road B.7076 north of Johnstonebridge.

It's about 200 yards from the Annandale Estates five miles of fishing on the Annan and about halfway between the Upper Annandale Anglers two four mile beats.

Central Hotel, St. Johns Road, Annan. The Central, despite its name, is on a quiet backstreet in Annan. It is owned by Gordon Clark who also owns the famous Cleughhead beat on the Annan. Check out the Cleughhead webpage and then contact the Central Hotel, quoting River Annan website for the best price for a five or six night package.
