Loch na h-Innse Fraoich

Directions: Leave the A837 near Loch Assynt Lodge. There is an all-abilities disabled access path to the loch, where there is an excellent boat, a jetty and boathouse and a toilet.

Accessibility - All Abilities Access
This loch is part of the All Abilities walk developed by the Culag Community Woodland Trust (CCWT). It has a boat on it that has been made suitable for disabled access, changeable for left and right handed use and with the option to sit astride rather than only forward or back facing.

Loch Leitir Easaidh is nearby and they make an excellent spot for families, with toilet facilities and is easily accessed.

Fraoich (the smaller of the two lochs) is particularly recommended as it fishes slightly better, and has great viewing points.

11 June

Very wet and windy day. Six small fish from bank, one half pounder. Despite the access paths to look-out points and boats, these lochs are not easy for bank fishing, with deep heather making access to the waterside pretty difficult, plus thick bracken, rowan trees and, in places, steep sides. The headwind didn't help, of course.
