a stunning loch

About

Leave the A897 at Grid reference 903485 (Forsinain) follow the forestry track, a 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track, to park at 925492. The loch lies a distant 3.1km in a NNE direction. It is fair to say that Sainn and its nearby neighbour Saird are for the more adventurous angler who enjoys a good walk in the heart of the stunning scenery of the flow country combined with some fishing. Don’t expect anything for the glass case but Sainn has a good head of spirited free rising fish. Relevant OS map and a compass are a must for the visiting angler.
