Maps and Information on the Salmon Fishing Rivers of Central Scotland

Some of the best and most famous Scottish salmon fishing rivers are to be found in the area I have defined as Central Scotland, i.e. the area stretching from the rugged Atlantic coast in the west to the North Sea in the east, from the industrial Central Belt in the south, through the central highlands and up as far as the Great Glen in the north, offering some of the finest salmon and sea trout fly fishing water in the country. In the following pages, linked from the map below, I will give information, including detailed maps, of the salmon fishing on the major rivers in this area, including the rivers Ness, Findhorn, Spey, Dee, Don, Deveron, Tay, North and South Esk and many more.

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.

For a comprehensive guide to fishing on the lochs and rivers of Scotland, I would recommend that you invest in a copy of Bruce Sandison's excellent book:
