The map shows the main salmon rivers in Scotland. Clicking on a blue dot will take you to a page showing detailed maps of each river, with additional information on the fishing available. You may also select a salmon river by clicking on a name in the table below, which lists all the major Scottish salmon rivers, organised by region.

The maps 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.
