Not the most picturesque of lochs with a quarry and local landfill tip close by. However, it is within 2 miles of Stornoway and provides easily accessible bank fishing. The brown trout are plentiful and average 6oz, however, fish up to 3lb have been occasionally caught. After heavy rain from July onwards, sea trout enter the loch via the Glen River. They are mainly finnock (8-14oz), however, sea trout of up to 3lb have been caught in the past as well as an occasional grilse. Donegal blue, Kate Maclaren, Black Pennell and Zulus will catch their share of both types of trout. The A858 Stornoway/Achmore road will take you right to the loch-side.

Getting to the Loch from Stornoway

Head out of Stornoway on the A858 for about three quarters of a mile.
Take the right turn at the top of the hill to remain on the A858 (easily missed).
After 100 yards, take the next left turn after Lavas garage (sign-posted Carlabhagh and Breascleit). Follow the road for about half a mile past all the houses.
Park in the large parking place on the left just after the national speed limit signs.
