Colmonell BridgeShould you be unfortunate enough to visit the Stinchar when the river is very low and unfishable, you could always fish one of the local lochs for brown or rainbow trout, or try sea fishing from the beach or from a boat which can be hired at the harbour at Girvan 12 miles north of Ballantrae.

Try out Pinbraid Fishery at Garnaburn, near Colmonell.

As a last resort bring your golf clubs and play some of the excellent courses, situated only a few miles from the river.
