About this water

Lake
Brown trout
South Uist, Scotland

One of the classic machair lochs of South Uist.
Bank and boat fishing are good. Productive areas are round the small islands in the west bay.
Like all these lochs the machair "drop off" can be found on the west of the loch.
I'm sure a team of flies over the edge of this feature is a good bet.

Expect the fishing to be slow but with great rewards of specimen wild brown trout.
