The Aline catchment is a hidden west coast gem, offering superb river and loch fishing set against the heather-clad hills and wooded straths of the Morvern peninsula.
Ardtornish Estate Office
The crystal clear waters of the River Aline provide 3 miles of double bank fishing on a traditional Highland spate river. Salmon and sea trout run the river from late spring onwards, with the best fishing in August and September as the grilse come in. Pools on the river are easily accessed and in most conditions can be successfully fished without the need for wading.
For those prepared to head out onto the open hill, the 15 hill lochs on Ardtornish Estate offer some truly wild brown trout fishing with not a soul to disturb your peace. The fish are not large, but you might not believe that as you fight with one on the end of your line! Why not take in four or five lochs for an unforgettable day's fishing in a stunning, unspoilt location.
If size is important to you, then the larger lochs in the catchment are home to some impressive trout. 1-2lb fish are plentiful on Lochs Doire nam mart and Tearnait, while Loch Arienas offers the chance to catch an exceptional trout with the current record standing at 16lbs.
