Trout Fishing at Ullapool, Scotland

Ullapool, lying on loch Broom at the mouth of the Ullapool River, is one the the main fishing ports and tourist centres of Wester Ross and makes an ideal centre for the trout fisherman, with many small lochs to be explored in the hills to the north, west and south.


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.
