I've recently got access to a caravan at Daviot and wondering about wild trout fishing in the area.  Either burns, Rivers or lochs from the shore. I'm familiar with the Spey but as Upper Findhorn and Upper Nairn are close by does anyone know if its possible to get a trout permit for them? Lochindorb is around half an hour away but seems to be a shadow of its former self going by the internet and the last time I fished there in the 1980's.
There are a few lochs down towards Whitebridge on the south side of Loch Ness but again information patchy. Is Loch Morlich worth a go?
Any advice appreciated
thanks Neil

don't bother with the Nairn for trout - as the only ones there seem to be sea trout ( I think because the in-river feeding is so poor...or so I have heard it say)

The Findhorn you wont really find trout fishing as its really a 'salmon river'. There are trout but you'd probably not want to pay for a salmon permit !

Like you say there are  quite  a few lochs down the whitebridge road - but ive only fished a couple of them. Knockie being one.

I like Loch Tarff and its got char in it too.

Loch Ruthven is good - but is boat fishing only

plently of lochs to have a go at  :z16
