Altan na Bradhn

Access from the Lochinver-Stoer road where there is parking for 2-3 cars and go down the short path to the bay, past the ancient mill (well worth a visit itself). You can head along both the north rocky shore or to the south, both of which can be good marks and have a largely sandy bottom.

6 June

Spinning with silver dexter off the rocks facing Achmelvich as the tide reached its high point and folded over. One coaly and one sea trout from deep just off the seaweed. Was hoping for mackerel but the sea trout was a first (and a big surprise).
