About this water

Brown trout
OS Grid Ref: NC 04991 26648
Latitude: 58.1854344781
Longitude: -5.31869366138

A roadside loch on the B869 just before you reach Clahtoll from Lochinver.
A good one for beginners or if you fancy a few casts once you have got down, with lots of average sized trout.
Take care at the north west end which has power cables and head through to Loch na h-Airighe Bige.
Otters have been seen here in recent years.
