About this water

Lake
Brown trout
OS Grid Ref: NC 13899 30497
Latitude: 58.2238
Longitude: -5.17053

Up in the hills behind Nedd, your best access to this large loch is to take the track heading south from Nedd at NC137319, being careful not to block access for other cars.
At the end of the track is a house and small byre. Proceed due south and then through a cutting between Cnoc Odhar and Cnoc Cailleach Iain which brings you out overlooking Gorm Loch Mor.
There are fish of all sizes here and some good sport to be had with the south/south western shore offfering the easiest casting.
Three quarters of the way along head south to the right of Gorm Chnoc, which looms over the end of Gorm Loch Mor, to Gorm Loch Beag. You can fish all the way around this loch and it has lots of trout between half and three quarters of a pound, as well as reputedly some larger specimens.
There is a boat on Gorm Loch Mor.
