Trout Fishing at Gairloch, Scotland

Gairloch is one of the most popular of the Wester Ross tourist centres, offering varied accommodation and many amenities for the visitor. Good sea fishing and excellent trout fishing on the lochs managed by the local angling club make this a superb base for the travelling trout fisherman.

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.
