Fishing at Melvich, Scotland
Melvich, situated at the mouth of the river
Halladale, in Sutherland, makes an ideal base
from which to explore the wonderful trout fishing in and around
Strath Halladale. The angler is spoilt for choice here with numerous
lochs, all holding good stocks of wild trout of two or three to the
pound and some will hold much bigger trout. Finding out which ones
might keep the trout fisherman happily occupied for many seasons.

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.
