The trip to Loch Bealach a' Mhadaidh is not for the unfit, or faint-hearted requiring a walk of seven kilometres from Inchnadamph. All sizes of trout in here but evidently a very good head of bigger fish are present with baskets of these big fish being taken from time to time. It doesn't get fished that often due to it's location but it is one of the best lochs in the area. Although hardly ever caught, salmon can migrate there also.
