A good beginner’s loch with plenty of 4-6oz fish with the odd larger one thrown in. The trout here rise readily to the fly, with the eastern section being the most productive, especially in the evening when larger trout tend to move inshore. Once again follow the A859. This loch is just across the road from Loch Breugach. The boat is moored in the south west corner, park in the quarry just opposite taking care when crossing the road as this is a 60mph zone.
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 4.5 miles (note that it becomes the A859 after three quarters of a mile).
As the road descends and approaches a gentle right turn, turn off the road and park in the quarry.
