Hill Loch Trout Fishing on Scotland’s West Coast
Ardtornish Estate boasts no fewer than 16 hill lochs and our native wild brown trout fishing has been very good in recent years in both quantity and quality of fish caught. The record brown trout, of 16 lbs, was caught in Loch Arienas in 2006 – which yields several hundred trout a year.
Guests staying in one of our properties may fish all Lochs for free, paying only for boat and engine hire if required.
For non-residents, fishing on Lochs Arienas, Doire nam Mart, Tearnait and all other lochs is £8.50 per rod per day. Boat hire on Loch Arienas or Loch Tearnait is £35.00 per day (£55.00 with an engine).
You can book loch fishing online using the button on the right hand on this page. The map below details the location of our lochs. Please note that you need to make your way to the lochs either on foot or by 4×4 vehicle (except to Arienas and Doire nam Mart, which are accessible by car).
If you would like to fish for more than one day, why not book one of our bothies and enjoy a real fishing adventure.
