Make Poll an Droighinn part of a day amongst Stoer's hill lochs.
There are two ways in: Either head in as for Lexy's Loch and then go north up the hillside about half way along the northern shore; or head in along the Stoer peat track starting at NC040295 heading south at NC054295.
Pollan Droighinn sits on top of the hillside with numerous islands and bays and lots of average sized trout.
From here you can explore some of the unamed lochans which can have some excellent fish.
Move on to try the two unnamed lochans to the north of the peat track, the easterly of which tends to get very weeded up; or move onto Loch na hi-Uidhe Doimhne.
