In the late 80s, Peter De Savary was chucking money (not his) around down here by the bucket load. Everyone, including all of our councils, were falling over themselves to get a piece of him. However, with all over that clout, he couldn't get permission to put a jetty into the water in front of his spectacular farmhouse on the Percuil River (St Mawes). It made total sense, as he was at the quiet end of the river and he could've boated over to his office at Falmouth docks and parked the helo.

The rule that was quoted to me... by none other than the head ghillie to the mighty Duke of Argyl clan ..when he caught me fishing for big silver “mackerel” on the low tide ..near Inverary

Quote ...“According to Scots law .. His Lordship owns the land ... as far out at low tide on springs as far as he can go on his horse.. plus as far as he can then throw his spear”

He was going to book me for illegal shore fishing .. until I slipped him a fiver. I had to come off the water though.. I then waited until he had gone..before recovering my catch of two lovely sea trout.. stashed in the bushes

This is a true version of what happened.. but I have no idea if the Ghillie’s quote is true .. I wasn’t going to argue with him.

It isn't likely to be cheap...

While the maps are for metal detecting, they also show the foreshore areas owned by the crown estate.
