A collection of small lochans an easy walk in from Clashnessie that make a great day out.
The lochans vary in size and fruitfulness, but there are some giants among the hills along with lots of average sized fish.
Park by Clashnessie Bay and follow the burn that runs SE/NW up from the road. There's a couple of old peat tracks, then cut across country and past another loch to get to this. Make it part of a day around the numerous lochans in this area.
The large loch with prominentary has some big trout as well as lots of smaller ones and a couple of the smaller lochs nearby also hold good fish.
