About

The biggest loch in the area, 8kms long by 1.5km wide, with both bank and boat fishing available. Brown trout, ferox, arctic char, salmon and sea trout, with a huge head of averaged sized trout. Very much better fish inhabit the waters obviously too with the odd double figure monster being taken from time to time, so watch out with every cast. Dangerous in high winds but easily accessible.
