Philiphaugh News Autumn 2018


The Cauld And Salmon Viewing Centre

The trees are turning and autumn is well and truly here. A rise in water in the River Ettrick saw salmon jumping at the cauld. The recently installed fish counter is working and we should get the September figures from Tweed Foundation shortly. October is usually a good month for the salmon to run but the river is now very low again. A significant rise in water is needed to bring fresh fish up river.

Philiphaugh Gardens

There has been a heavy crop of apples in the garden this season. They are delicious and sweet. There will also be a few late strawberries from the polytunnel but day length is shortening and hence the season is nearly over for 2018.


The gardens are open Monday to Friday 8-4 and weekends by appointment.


Why not come for a walk and witness the beautiful autumn colours. The Waterwheel café will welcome you for lunch or coffee to refresh you after your walk.

The species included are salmon, trout, grayling, eel, perch, a brief view of an otter knocking the camera and a goosander swimming underwater below the cauld.

All proceeds will be used towards the upkeep of the centre, for the purchase of equipment, cameras and towards maintaining the facilities. The DVD is priced at £5.
