Trout 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.

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
