Trout Fishing at Elphin, Scotland

Elphin, lying to the south of Assynt and Inchadamph, is another excellent trout fishing centre, surrounded by such famous lochs as Veyatie, Cam Loch, Urigill and Borralan. Some of the lochs, for example Cam Loch, Veyatie, Ailsh and Awe, are fished on the Assynt Angling Group permit.

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.
