Leave the A836 Thurso/Bettyhill road at Grid reference NC 868651 and follow the road south. This is a rough track so a 4×4 will be necessary to drive to the end and park at NC 859626. Eaglaise Beag involves an energetic 4.5km walk over some wet ground, visiting anglers should carry the relevant OS map and a compass. Walk south keeping to the high ground east of Cnoc Eipteil. Continue walking south passing along the east bank of Achridigill, the northern bank of Eaglaise Mor is a further 15 minute walk. Follow the west bank of the loch until about half way down then head SW across the moor, Eaglaise Beag is a further ten minute walk. The loch is shallow with some outstanding quality fish up to 2lbs in weight; the west bank deepens quickly and is very soft and difficult to wade in places though can be productive. Despite the challenging walk in Eaglaise Beag is a delightful place to fish, remote, peaceful and amongst the spectacular scenery of the flow country.
