The River Feugh is the most important tributary of the River Dee and is well known for the salmon leaping at the Falls of Feugh, well worth a visit. The Feugh begins high in the Forest of Birse, to the south of Aboyne, and flows through some of the most scenic areas in Aberdeenshire before joining the River Dee at Banchory.

The Feugh is a spate river and fishes best after a rise of water where must anglers comply with the beat regulations, available on request.

Heughhead Fishings is situated 2 miles upstream from the Falls of Feugh. This is an ideal river for beginners to learn to fish for salmon and trout with no necessity for long casts. The intimate pools offer a challenge requiring stealth and finesse when the river is low and clear. Children accompanied by responsible supervisory adults' fish for free. The river banks are well maintained and have access to all the pools.
