A comparatively small loch with good quality hard fighting brown trout averaging 6-8oz, the South-east corner and the whole of the South side are best. Easily accessible from the A859 Stornoway/Tarbert road - take the peat road off to your right about 400m past the junction with the B897, park at the sheep fank and follow the track down the hill which takes you right to the loch-side. Please ensure that you close all gates after you.

Getting to the Loch from Stornoway

Take the A857 out of the centre of Stornoway, going straight ahead for another 100 yards at the first roundabout onto Macaulay Road.
Take a left turn and carry on for 300 yards.
Take a left turn onto the A858 and carry straight on up the hill and remain on the main road for about 4 miles (note that it becomes the A859 after three quarters of a mile).
Turn right onto the track 700 yards after the Leurbost junction just before the left turn sign.
After about 100 yards, park next to the sheep fank.
