Sutherland has a whole host of lochs and rivers that are idyllic and trout rich. The stunning 6mile loch Naver can be fished for both sea trout and brown trout. Loch Hope, a freshwater loch, is famous for its sea trout and can be fished from June to September. Loch Hope was recently praised by fisherman Bruce Sandison in Fly Fishing & Fly Tying Magazine. He describes the loch as “Scotlands leading sea-trout water” as well as one of ”most dramatic” lochs in Scotland. Click here to read his full article.
