About this water

Lake
Brown trout
OS Grid Ref: NC 04099 28097
Latitude: 58.198032
Longitude: -5.335063

Right next to the B869 in Stoer, on your right if you are heading north opposite Stoer Bay on your left.
It was for years reputed to have very few, if any, fish in it. However, there have been reports recently of decent trout being caught there.

Very easily accessed. There isn’t a huge amount of fishable shoreline, but a nice spot for youngsters to cast a line and is close to the beach at Stoer.
