Salmon Fishing - River Aline Scotland

O. S. Map 49

The Aline is an attractive river, three miles long, with easy access for the fisherman. It flows out of Loch Arienas and, soon after, is joined by two tributaries which flow from the Black Glen and the White Glen (Gleann Dubh and Gleann Geal). When in spate, the force of the flow from the tributaries can force the flow of the main river back into the loch, thus helping to maintain the flow of the river below for an extended period.

The fishing on the Aline is divided into three beats, on which the best of the fishing is from June onwards. Each beat accommodates three rods. At one time, prior to the advent of the salmon farms, the Aline could be expected to produce catches of around 50 salmon and 200 sea trout. In 1998, it is reported that only 9 salmon and 48 sea trout were caught. The fishing is owned and administered by Ardtornish Estate, which also has the fishing on the Rannoch, a closely neighbouring river. The fishing is normally let in association with holiday cottages on the estate. Contact Ardtornish Estate, Morvern, By Oban.

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.
