Best places in Scotland to go fishing - for free

Looking for the best places to cast my rod into the sea, what I could catch and best times of year for this?

    @Fishjagger what area are you looking to fish? Although not a fishing person myself a webpage that I tend to use is http://http// hope this is of some help :)

    @VisitScotlandNikkiR that is brilliant thank you for that - didn't know that website existed - one for the favourites! I'm looking at fishing around the west coast, usually from the rocks casting into the sea but thinking of trying fly flashing soon! Thanks again for your help  :)
  • Have a look at the world sea fishing forum too - they have reports from all over scotland:
    Search for scottish shore reports on the world sea fishing forum

    Also for Skye and Lochalsh area:

    Google "fishing on skye"

    We'll be there in September and looking forward to fishing loch duich again - sorry did try and post links but I'm a newbie and it won't let me post links just yet

    I don't fish myself but lots of people sea-fish from the beach at Arbroath West Links and no permits are required for that.

    P.S. @andybbourne I've upgraded you to fully fledged member status, so you should be able to post links now  ;)
