Thanks Hamish.  It was your Local Hero clue that helped.

Now i need to think of a suitable successor question.
But when i think of it, a wee side question.. If a seatrout water goes into decline then can it become a quality brown trout water?

That's without getting the map out Allan, getting a map out for a question like that would be like taking your laptop to Mastermind so you can use wikipedia!!
