Achagour pioneer passes on

It is with great sadness that anglers around the Highlands and the north-east will hear of the passing of Stewart Mackintosh, owner and developer of the popular Achagour Trout Fishery at the family farm. Stewart had been in ill health for some time, and had frequent spells in hospital. But it was at home on Monday (November 9) that he spent his last hours with his wife Margaret and family.

Stewart was a generous friend and strong supporter of Inverness Angling Club. It was at Achagour that the club’s annual winter trout league was launched some 12 years ago. He took great delight in spending time with anglers, and in contributing valuable prizes for league winners and club competitions at the Highland Field Sports Fair.

Stewart will be sorely missed. Members and friends of Inverness Angling Club send their deepest condolences to his extended family.
