Trout Fishing on Islay, Scotland
The Isle of Islay, lying to the south west of near
neighbour Jura, is perhaps more famed for the quality of its malt
whiskies than for its trout fishing. Nevertheless, the visiting
trout fisherman will find many excellent opportunities on the lochs
of this beautiful island.
The maps on this website have been
reproduced with the permission of Collins Bartholomew. 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.
