Maps and Information on Trout Lochs and Rivers of the Scottish Islands

Enough trout fishing to keep even the most energetic and dedicated of fly fishermen going for several lifetimes, the Scottish Islands are home to hundreds, perhaps thousands, of trout lochs, with a fishing flavour all of their own, from the rich Machair lochs of Uist, to the wild lochs of Lewis and Harris; from the remote lochs of Shetland to the fertile waters of Orkney, most accessible to the visiting trout fisherman for a few pounds, sometimes none at all. A true fishing paradise indeed!

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:
