Maps and Information on Trout Lochs and Rivers in Southern Scotland

An area better known for its salmon and sea trout rivers, the south of Scotland nevertheless has some hidden trout fishing gems. There is excellent trout and grayling fishing in the rivers Clyde, Nith, Annan, Tweed and Teviot as well as many smaller streams and, in addition, some good loch fishing in the Pentland Hills and the hills of Ayrshire, Renfrewshire and Galloway.

Trout Fishing Areas


The maps on this website have been reproduced with the permission of Collins Bartholomew.

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:
