Pots of Gartness

 

The Pots of Gartness is a series of rocky pools on the Endrick Water to the west of Killearn, near to Gartness. It’s a great place to watch salmon on their way up river to spawn.

Believe the best time to go is during October and November.

  1. Hi there to whom this may concern, I was up at the pots of gartness on saturday to see if i could see any salmon leaping unfortunatley there was none so i was wondering if someone can help me and let me know when is the best time to go up and see them all trying to make there way up to spawn.

    Please let me know ASAP

    Kind Regards

  2. Hi there – I’m told the Pots is a great place to see salmon leaping, but had no luck yesterday (Mon 29th Oct). We just went to the bridge over the Endrick at Gartness hamlet, but probably the Pots are elsewhere on the river? Could somebody please give directions to the actual pots?
    Many thanks in advance

    • before you get into the Hamlet walk through the gate for Mill House and follow the path,go past the first house and then at a bend the waterfall is signposted down some steps. Good Luck. We saw salmon at the end of September an amazing site

  3. Thanks so much, Sue – will let you know how we get on!

    • I have lived in England for 42 years now but when I get home my favourite place to visit is the pots. you need to visit from september onwards to november preferably ay times of high rainfall when you can often see lots of salmon trying to pass the falls. what you need to realise is that at the gate on the road it may well have a private property sign. ignore this as access to the falls has always been available.

  4. Hi we parked near here today but can we check is the access the road which looks like it goes to the farm – we didn’t like to go up there as it looked like a private road but checking this again on here it looks like the correct route?
    Thanks
