Trout Fishing Lochinver, Scotland
Lochinver, a fishing village situated at the mouth
of the River Inver on the west coast of Sutherland, is a good centre
for a fishing holiday, surrounded as it is by many excellent trout
lochs set in the most wild and rugged scenery of the west highlands.
Fishing is readily available on the lochs under the jurisdiction of
the Assynt Crofters Association and on the one hundred and fifty
lochs controlled by the Assynt Angling Group.

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.
