The association has a boat here which is kept at the north end where the burn runs out to the sea.
This is a long narrow loch and there are a number of rocks and shallows, mostly in the north end and the narrows, which the boat angler should be aware of.
Rather dark coloured brown trout which average 8 to 10 ounces. Used to get a good run of sea trout and the loch has been stocked recently.
