This is essentially an early loch, only fishing well from March to June. Trout over 2lb have been taken in the past when the average brown trout was around the 10oz mark. Bright flies seem to work best. Take the A859 Stornoway/Tarbert road for about a mile, look for the junction at Marybank then take the A858 Stornoway/Achmore road for three miles. The loch is just past the three large wind turbines and is inside the fork in the road.
