A little effort is required to reach this loch and is, therefore, little fished. Park at the end of the road at the head of Collafirth (430689) then walk along the east shore of the bay for about a half mile and then bear right up through the shallow depression between the two hills and the loch is straight ahead. Good quality brown trout which average well over a pound.
Fishing permits can be purchased at either the Lerwick Tourist Office or the tackle shop, Rod and Line, which is in Harbour Street in Lerwick. The SAA organises a number of fishing competitions during the season running separate boat and bank leagues and the visiting angler will be made most welcome at these. Details will be supplied with your permit.
Boats for hire – The Association has a number of boats for hire and at the present these are located at the following lochs – Loch of Benston, Loch of Asta, Loch of Northouse, Loch of Clousta, Loch of Tingwall, Sulma Water and Punds Water. These can change but details of boat locations and hire can be got from the tackle shop.
Clubhouse – The SAA owns an unlicensed clubhouse, situated in Burns Lane in Lerwick, to which the visiting angler is most welcome. Hours of opening are from 8.30pm and 11.00pm on most Tuesdays and Fridays.
