Loch Thormaid

As with Loch Dubh, access from the track on the Achmelvic road. From Loch Dubh you can follow a footpath up to Loch Thornaid working along its north west shore.

You should also try Loch nan Gobhar and Loch Braigh a' Bhaile as part of a day with spectatcular views along the coast. Some cracking fish have been caught in these lochs in recent years, beautiful in colour with bright red spots.

Have you fished here?

For the second year running tried a couple of these lochs without any success or sign of fish, although it was cold. Has anyone else caught anything here in recent years? Whilst it did have a good population of growing trout a few years ago, these seem to have disappeared - or become very shy!

If you have any experience, let us know...
