Maps and Information on Sea Trout Lochs and Rivers in Northern Scotland

The north west highlands of Scotland once offered the best sea trout fishing in the world. Fishermen would come from all corners of the globe to drift in an open boat on wild lochs like Maree, Stack, More, Shiel, Hope and Eilt, or to fish through the short summer nights on the rivers connecting the lochs to the sea, just for the chance of a shining sea trout fresh from the Atlantic. Alas, the sea trout stocks have been decimated in recent decades, though some fishermen still come, unable to resist the enduring appeal of the north west highlands, with its once pristine sea lochs, until very recently unsullied by the hand of industry. It is to be hoped that the powers that be will realise what has been lost.... before it is too late.

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. See Ordnance Survey Maps.

For a comprehensive guide to fishing on the lochs and rivers of Scotland, I would recommend that you invest in a copy of Bruce Sandison's excellent book:
