Fishing at Halkirk, Scotland
Halkirk lies to the south of Thurso in northern Caithness, just about
as far north as you can get on the Scottish mainland, and is an
excellent centre from which the trout fisherman can explore the superb
loch fishing of Caithness, on famous trout lochs like Watten, Calder, Heilen and St John's. Trout fly fishing at its very best.

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.
