About this water

Lake
Brown trout and Sea trout
OS Grid Ref: NC 10680 25725
Latitude: 58.17963665667
Longitude: -5.22135444002

This loch has some good trout fishing but also gets runs of sea trout. It is in a wonderful setting.
Park at the side of the B869 by the turning for Rhicarn. This is a small space on the left heading towards Lochinver. Please do not park in the turning itself and do not block access.
Walk down the Rhicarn turning and past the houses. There is a very good path uphill which takes you all the way to Loch Crocach. When you near the loch, go through the deer fence and keep right on the Crocach peat track.
The ground can be quite boggy but follow the burn past Cnoc nan Caorach Beaga which is to the north. Proceed easterly to NC107258.
There is a boat available.
