About this water

Brown trout
OS Grid Ref: NC 12299 29397
Latitude: 58.213257
Longitude: -5.196838

A beautiful, large loch and a stiff 3 mile walk in brings you to the heart of North Assynt.
Lots and lots of fish, many very small, but also with fatter and larger trout. Fish in the margins all the way around except the steep wooded area on the south west shore. The southern side is reported as being best and you'll catch tiddlers by the bucket load near the inlet at the south eastern end.
Water levels have been artificially raised in the last decade whcih has also helped the fishing.
