Assynt Angling Group, Southern Zone

Fionn Loch

Set in spectacular scenery at the foot of Suilven and at the top of the River Kirkaig, this 3.5km long loch holds a superb head of brown trout with pink flesh and arctic char. Good numbers of bigger than average trout taken with a few real lunkers taken each season.

Loch a Choin (The Dog Loch)

On the 'mad wee road' south from Lochinver, this is in easy reach of the road. Not many, but excellent quality trout reside here in clear water. 2.5lbs is a nice fish but there are much bigger fish undoubtedly about.

Loch a Ghlinnen

A beautiful loch en route to Loch Feith an Leothaid, Ghlinnen is home to a robust population of beautifully marked, hard fighting, pink fleshed, wild trout. There are some good trout lurking in the clear waters of this loch so always be prepared!

Loch an Alltain Duibh

Small loch on the river below Suileag Bothy. Plenty of small brown trout that respond well to a dry fly.

N.B. This loch added by site user.

Directions: Head south out of Lochinver on the unmarked road toward Inverkirkaig. Once past Badnaban, park where the road turns a sharp right on a flat plateau and follow the burn up the gulley to Loch Bad na Murichinn (also known as the Children's Loch). It takes between 15-30 minutes, depending on your speed.

There is a boat available which helps to explore the wooded southern shoreline as well as making it easier to cover the large water.
