The Assynt Angling Group was formed in the year 2000. It is a unique partnership of local anglers (The Assynt Angling Club) and eight local landowners who have come together to administer some of the finest wild brown trout fishing in Europe.

The area includes some of the best scenery in the North West Highlands, encompassing the summits of Ben More Assynt, Canisp, Conival, Cul Beag, Cul Mor, Suilven and Quinag. There are two National Nature Reserves within the locality, Inchnadamph and part of Inverpolly.

Assynt and its surrounding area has always been popular with anglers, and the fishing has been well documented in angling literature spanning more than a century. Click for larger colour map © Historic Assynt
The Assynt area is one of outstanding natural beauty. The native fauna and flora are not just of British but European significance.

Brown trout is the main species. A number of waters have ferox trout and char and five of the main lochs have salmon and sea trout. The Group recognises the fragile environment in which these fish populations exist and aims to manage the fishings in a sustainable manner for the long term benefit of anglers and the local economy.
