Maps and Information on the Salmon Lochs and Rivers in the Scottish Islands

Last but not least, we turn to the Scottish Islands - the Western Isles of Lewis, Harris, North and South Uist, and the Isles of Skye and Mull, in particular - famed, not only for their incomparable wild brown trout fishing, but also for some very special salmon and sea trout fishing of unique character. This island salmon and sea trout fishing is done, through the summer months and into the autumn, mainly on the lochs, with a few notable exceptions, in contrast to the more usual river fishing throughout the mainland.

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:
