Loch Katrine

Go fly fishing for trout on the lake from spring through autumn.

Loch Katrine is a long and narrow lake in the district of Stirling and a popular destination for tourists and Scots, alike. Fly fishing for trout is a popular activity on the lake from spring through autumn.

Since 1859 Loch Katrine has been the primary water reservoir for Glasgow and the surrounding area, and its water levels are artificially raised with the help of a dam between Katrine and the neighbouring Loch Lomond.

The name “Katrine” comes from the Gaelic word ceathairne, meaning cattle thief and referring to a band of fighting men. The most popular of these men was the famed Rob Roy, who was born at the north end of the loch.
