About this water

Lake
Brown trout
Assynt, Scotland

There's a couple of lochs close together here with some very nice trout in them, usually very silver in colour and not easy to tempt, but worth it when you do!
There's also a loch to the north nearer Crocach that has some nice fish among the lillies.
Park at Rhicarn and follow the path as if going to Crocach. Just before reaching Crocach go through the deer fence and head east.
