This loch is a favourite for many of the local fly fishers because of it’s hard fighting, quality trout averaging 10 - 12oz. Although "dour" at times this loch is worth persisting with as there are trout of over 3lb lurking in it’s depths. Recommended flies: Claret Bumble, Ombudsman, Loch Ordie and Claret Dabbler. A good South-west wind sees this loch at its best, but beware it can get stormy here very quickly, and there are some anchor ropes from previous salmon cages still present in the loch, so if it gets wild come ashore. Travelling from Stornoway, the loch is close to the road, on the right hand side, after the turn off for Loch Airigh Riabhach.
