Not sure about the west coast, but Johnshaven has many marks both north and south.

Looks through the Scottish forum for marks like:

Crawton
Arbroath
Portlethen
Red Rock
Ethie Mains
Catererline
Montrose
Dundee
Auchmithie

All of these are within 30 or so miles of Johnshaven - and there are dozens of others also within this 30 miles. An ordenance survey map is the best way to track them down.

Have a read of bigdunnys post

This is an easy drive from Johnshaven

just back from a weeks hols up at dornie/glenelg....
no room for my fishin stuff but managed to sit and watch a few fish taken.
try spinning off the rocks at glenelg on rising tide as salmon and sea trout follow the shore round to go up the river.
some guys caught 8 day before i got there.
good luck and enjoy the visit.

Last year we were fishing the Harbour and someone came over to get a fish weighed a 11lb cod taken from the gullies to the left of the harbour. This was winter though. There was an article in SA or TSF about Johnshaven a couple of years ago.
