Trout Fishing at Lairg, Scotland

Lairg is an excellent trout fishing centre, situated at the south end of Loch Shin and surrounded by a number of excellent trout lochs. The Lairg Angling Club manages much of the fishing and sells permits for the lochs under their control. One or two excellent hill lochs like Beannach and Graggie... well worth a visit. The Overscaig hotel, at the north end of Loch Shin, offers fishing on Lochs Shin and Merkland.

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.
