Salmon and Sea Trout Fishing on the Kyle of Sutherland Scotland

O. S. Map 21

The Kyle of Sutherland is a large tidal area extending some twenty five miles from the confluence of the rivers Oykel and Cassley eastwards to the Dornoch Firth. Both salmon and sea trout are caught, with the Kyle of Sutherland Angling Club taking in the region of 400 salmon and 200 sea trout per season.

A dry summer, with low river levels on the rivers Carron, Shin, Oykel and Cassley, can hold salmon and sea trout in the Kyle and give some good fishing, both from boat and from the shore. The angling club produces a useful booklet to help visiting anglers get the best out of the fishing. A day permit from the angling club to fish from the shore will cost 8 a day for sea trout fishing and 33 for salmon.

Kyle of Sutherland Map


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.
