About this water

Lake
Brown trout
OS Grid Ref: NC 27695 19440

Taking about an hour and a half to reach from the Inchnadamph car park and once known as The Gilaroo Loch, this is a relatively small loch with limestone bed. Historical catches of big fish over 5lbs are recorded and shown locally in glass cases in hotels and although the average is much more modest today you never know when the next big one could strike!
