Trout Fishing in
The Western Isles of Lewis, Harris and the Uists
are something of an angling paradise, with thousands of lochs
offering some of the highest quality trout fishing in Scotland and,
although some of the salmon and sea trout fishing in quite exclusive
and expensive, most of the trout fishing is readily accessible at
reasonable cost. The lochs listed represent only a small sample of
the many lochs available.
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.
