Low alkalinity Shallow Low shoreline complexity Low elevation Very small

About

Leave the A836 Thurso/Bettyhill road at Grid reference 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 859626. Nan Clach involves an energetic 4.2km 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. Continue heading south following the east shore of Eaglaise Mor then over the open moor to reach Nan Clach. Little is known about the fishing in this loch but it is well worth a visit combined with other lochs in the area. One for the adventurous angler.
