Maps and Information on Trout Lochs and Rivers in Central Scotland

The region I have defined as Central Scotland stretches from Stirling in the south to Inverness and the Great Glen in the north, the area including the Central Highlands of Scotland, with its magnificent mountains, heather moors and wooded glens, its peaty moorland lochs, high corrie lochans and long glacial lochs offering fine fly fishing for truly wild brown trout, from both boat and bank. Here we have such famous brown trout fisheries as Loch Leven and Carron valley, the beautiful lochs of the Trossachs and we mustn't forget the renowned river trout fishing on the Don, Tay and Tummel.

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:
