hi there all
I was looking to fish Danskine later in the year and was wondering what the access to the water was like.
My mate who normally fishe's with me is disabled and can only walk short distances and we have only been able to fish Fintry and would like to try somewhere else for a change of scenery.


cheers
Paul

Danskine isn't suitable for your mate, better off with Lanark or Kinghorn.

By the way Keaney, this post is in the wrong section. There is a Danskine section, for some reason this ended up in the Libo section!!

For Kinghorn a lot of the bank can be accessed direct from the car although some of the swims have steps. It's actually that good if you are doing a quick session you can turn up, park, chuck the rods out and sit in the motor and still be very close to your rods.

The SCG pegs will probably be too far a walk, most able bodied anglers can break sweat getting their gear along to the far end of the loch!

I am sure their used to be a rule about taking your car closer to the water at Lanark for blue badge holders, not sure if this is still in place, maybe one of the Lanark regulars can advise?

The rules at Lanark have been changed for quite a long time with regard cars on Lanark.

NO cars, including blue badge holders to be taken down to the loch.
This was done for safety reasons and is a council decision.

Kinghorn as Paul says is Great for disabled anglers.

Cheers
Saul

And apparently with its location it takes a good few months to warm up.

thanks for the advice on Lanark disabled parking I will head up there myself before dragging the mate along in case the walk from car is to far for him.

thanks
Paul
