This is a small loch further along the Achmore road from Bhuna and on the opposite side of the road (just past the Loch with fish cages on). It is regarded as one of the "dourer" lochs in the area with early mornings and late evenings providing the best chance of sport, especially along the northern shore which seems to hold the larger fish. So if you fancy a challenge this could be the loch that yields a fish in the 2 - 3lb class.
