Trout Fishing Arisaig, Scotland
Arisaig is a popular centre lying to the
south of Loch Morar, the deepest loch in Scotland and makes a good
base from which to explore some excellent loch fishing, especially
those who like to combine a bit of fishing with a walk in the hills.
Here too are two once famous sea trout fisheries in Loch Eilt and
Loch Shiel and their associated rivers Ailort and Shiel. The sea
trout fishing has declined in recent years but the lochs are still
worth fishing for brown trout.
The maps on this website have been

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.
