Trout Fishing at Scourie, Scotland

Scourie, lying just to the south of the famous sea bird sanctuary of Handa Island on the west Sutherland coast, is well known to Scottish anglers as a superb centre for exploring the endless fly fishing opportunities offered by the surrounding area. Hundreds a of trout lochs, some easily accessible, others requiring a fair bit of effort to reach on foot, all holding hard fishing wild Scottish brown trout. Much of the fishing is managed by the Scourie Hotel or by the local Angling Club.

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.
