Location on World map
White Wolf Mountain
Camelot Catherby Taverley

Catherby is a small fishing town located south-east of Camelot and west of White Wolf Mountain. It is a members-only town, and is the ultimate "go to" town for fishermen of all levels due to the variety of fishing spots available on its shores. It is also a popular town for woodcutters, due to the vast amount of trees to the west of the town. This town is also recommended for farmers of all levels because of the allotment farming patches north of town, which are the closest to a bank and a farming shop, and the Fruit tree patch immediately to the east of town.

To the east of Catherby is White Wolf Mountain. This area can be deadly to low-level players because level 25 and level 38 White wolves inhabit the area, as well as a level 73 Big wolf. To the west of Catherby is Camelot and Seers' Village, and to the south-west is the mighty city of East Ardougne, the capital of Kandarin.



The clock above the bank has stopped at 10:04, a reference to the 1985 movie Back to the Future

Catherby Farming Patches

The Farming spots in Catherby are a popular spot to train Farming. To the north of Catherby lies a large patch that is used in Farming. There are two allotment patches for growing vegetables, one herb patch for growing various herbs used in Herblore and one flower patch for growing flowers to help protect other produce. Wandering nearby is, as usual, a handy Tool Leprechaun.

There is also a Fruit tree patch located south-east of Catherby near White Wolf Mountain. Here you can grow your own Fruit Trees. Elena will look after your tree for a fee.


Main article: Dantaera

Dantaera is the master farmer of the Catherby farming patches. She will happily look after your crops for you for a fee. She also runs a small farming shop.

White Wolf Mountain Agility Grapple Shortcut

Near the fruit tree patch on the shores of Catherby is an Agility shortcut which allows you to grapple up a small cliff. To use this shortcut you need a mithril grapple and level 35 Ranging, level 32 Agility and level 35 Strength. You also need to have completed the Fishing Contest quest. You cannot grapple back down however.

Taverley Dungeon To Catherby Agility Grapple Shortcut

South of the Catherby fishing spots on the shore is another Agility Shortcut. This shortcut allows you to grapple across from the Water Obelisk Island to the shores of Catherby. To use this shortcut you need a mithril grapple and level 29 Ranging, level 36 Agility and level 22 Strength.

Catherby Shore Fishing Spots

This place has one of the most abundant fishing areas in RuneScape for players with lower than Level 68 Fishing. There are 2 Net/Bait spots, 2 Cage/Harpoon spots, and 3 Net/Harpoon spots, allowing you to use fishing equipment such as Small Nets, Big Nets, Harpoons and Lobster Pots to catch almost any type of fish, as well as a nearby bank, range, and fishing shop. However, you can't fish Monkfish, Manta Rays, or Sea Turtles here. It is often crowded with people, mostly catching Lobsters, Swordfish and Sharks.

The Houses Of Catherby

This range in Catherby is a popular place for the fishers nearby to cook their fish.

In the small two-story house directly south of the farming patch is an insect repellent spawn. This is used during the Merlin's Crystal Quest. Upstairs in this house is a jug of wine spawn, as well as what appears to be a Saradomin rug on the floor.

To the east of this house is another house. This house belongs to a man named Caleb, whom players meet during the Family Crest quest. Inside his house is a range and sink. There are also pie dish, burnt fish, jug of water, knife and bucket of water spawns in his house.

To the east of Caleb's house is another house, containing three strange chests that are locked up in a cage, there is a bank table in the house, bringing up the possibility of the building being a bank.

There is a house to the east of the bank with a range. This range is often used for cooking what you have fished for as it is very close to a bank.

Trader Stan's Catherby Charter Post

From here you can charter a ship to take you to the following places:

Note: By wearing a Ring of charos (a) you will only be charged half of the above prices (there is no charm option, so you may not notice it). Completing Cabin Fever quest also halves the prices. If you have complete both the Cabin Fever quest and you wearing a Ring of Charos (a) you will only be charged a quarter of the above prices (note that travel to/from Mos Le'Harmless is already halved, due to the requirement of completing Cabin Fever to access there.)
