Fishing breaks Scotland

The majestic landscapes and river valleys that surround Scotland's largest city provides avid fishermen with a memorable and enriching experience. Within 40 minutes from Glasgow, an endless selection of deep-sea lochs, secluded coves, upland streams and fresh water lochs wait to be discovered, each serving as idyllic spots for fishing breaks in Central Scotland.

An hour to the north west of Glasgow is Loch Katrine, offering enthusiasts trout fishing amidst the spectacular scenery of the Trossachs, a region of outstanding natural beauty protected by the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. This fresh water loch is entirely landlocked and is supplied by Loch Arklet and Loch Finglass, lending to its favourable position as a pollution-free and secluded fishing location. Boat Hire in Loch Katrine is available from Stronachlachar pier.

Loch Lomond is a short rail journey from Charing Cross Station and is the largest fresh water expanse in Great Britain. It is home to the region's richest fish stocks due to its large surface area and depth, as well as its connection to the Clyde Estuary. At the southern reaches of the loch in and around Balloch (the end of the rail line), anglers are rewarded with salmon and sea trout fishing whilst the central and northern areas of this 23-mile long lake offer a more varied selection of fish from brown and rainbow trout to pike and roach. Various fishing shops and clubs around Loch Lomond provide information about permits and fishing regulations, also offering useful tips and techniques.

As an alternative to fresh water fishing, an excellent variety of locations for sea angling can be found, particularly at the edge of the Clyde Estuary in Inverclyde and across the water at Helensburgh and Kilcreggan. Ayrshire is also a popular destination for sea angling, providing day-long excursions and trips to the Firth of Clyde. From Ailsa Craig to the Isle of Arran and Cumbrae, the area is noted for rich stocks of mackerel, pollack, cod, skate, and saithe. Sea fishing trips are available from Largs, Ayr, Troon and Grivan with prices ranging from £4 upwards per hour for each person, excluding rod hire.

The West of Scotland truly provides a world class range of fishing spots and opportunities for the avid angler whilst guaranteeing a warm welcome.
