Maps and Information on the Salmon Fishing Rivers of Northern Scotland

There can be few places on earth to match the magnificent scenery, or the salmon fishing, of the north highlands of Scotland, a land of rugged mountains and open moors, of shining lochs and rushing rivers, a wild, uncrowded land with red deer on the hill, grouse and curlew on the moor, trout in every loch and, best of all, salmon in every river. The largest of the northern salmon fishing rivers, the Ness, Conon and Beauly, flow eastwards to the North Sea, in sharp contrast to the short, tumbling streams of the western slopes. In some, there is the chance of a salmon from opening day in January, while others, particularly the spate rivers of the west, must rely for good fishing on summer rain to bring the salmon up from the sea.

In addition to the information provided here, I would recommend that anyone planning a fishing or walking trip in Scotland should equip themselves with a compass and the appropriate Ordnance Survey map. The most useful of the O.S. maps for the fisherman is the Landranger series, scale 1:50,000. For each of the lochs and rivers listed here, I have given the relevant O.S. Map number. See Ordnance Survey Maps.

For a comprehensive guide to fishing on the lochs and rivers of Scotland, I would recommend that you invest in a copy of Bruce Sandison's excellent book:
