A wonderful setting half an hour up the path from Rhicarn on th B869. Crocach is a large loch, with lots of bays and islands to tempt the angler.
There are large numbers of quick rising fish in the loch, but most are pretty small with the odd pounder landed. Drift down the loch and fish amongst the islands or fish from the bank along the southern shore.
There are a number of smaller unnamed lochans to the south and south west that are also well worth trying.
