Trout Fishing in Shetland, Scotland

The Shetlands offer the visiting trout fisherman a tremendous number and variety of trout lochs, many of them managed by local angling associations, the main one being the Shetland Angling Association, and all available to the visitor at most reasonable rates.

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 always been.

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.  See Ordnance Survey Maps
