About this water

Lake
Brown trout
OS Grid Ref: NC 06599 30197
Latitude: 58.217966
Longitude: -5.29435

A long, meandering loch with numerous nooks, crannies and bays - and lots of small trout. Ideal for Assynt beginners, you get a sense of the remoteness and the maze of heather, rock and lochs!
Start by walking up the Stoer peat track from NC040296, ignoring the two lochs nearby which are shallow and full of reeds. About a mile in, walk down to Loch an Easin and start fishing there, working along to Loch Nan Lub, keep moving and ultimately you reach Garbh Loch Beag (which has some larger fish).
If you're having a long day out, drop down to Loch Poll Dhaidh or head north to the unnamed lochans north of Loch Nan Lub.
