About this water

Lake
Brown trout and Sea trout
OS Grid Ref: NC 03999 29297
Latitude: 58.208748
Longitude: -5.337772

An attractive roadside loch at the Clashnessie end of Stoer well worth a go (park at the northern end in the cut away, not in front of the houses). It reputedly had 3,000 sea trout fry put in a few years ago but is heavily fished given it's ease of access and can be dour, although you often see rises.
