Fishing at Altbea, Scotland
Aultbea, on the shores of Loch Ewe, just north of
Poolewe, lies within easy reach of numerous wild trout lochs. Those
willing to stretch their legs will be well rewarded with fine trout
fishing on lochs which rarely see another fisherman. To the north
lie the lochs of the Rubha Mor peninsula, with many more trout
filled lochs, such as Fada and Fionn, to the south east. A lovely part
of the west highlands with enough trout fishing to keep even the
keenest of anglers fully 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. See
