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.
