Fishing at Durness, Scotland
The fine trout fly fishing on the limestone lochs
of the Durness peninsula is world famous - the clear waters of
Calladale, Borralaidh and Croisaphuill produce wild brown trout of
unmatched quality. To the west of Durness, there is also some
excellent wild trout fishing on the Cape Wrath peninsula, all
available to the visiting angler.

Please note that these maps may date back several decades.
Much of the human detail will have changed but the character of the rivers and
lochs, and the trout and salmon in them, will be much the same as they have
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.
