Assynt Angling Group

Loch Awe

A roadside loch which is popular and easily accessible with boat only fishing. It has a very good head of trout of decent average size but also has good numbers of larger fish in there too. A few salmon and sea trout enter the loch also, but are very rarely caught.

Loch Bad an Sluic

Assynt Angling Group Southern Zone

Small loch reachable by following the track from Loch Druim Suardalain up
the hill behind Suileag bothy; or from the north by walking up from Little
Assynt, via Loch an Leothaid and Loch Crom. 

Good population of wild brown trout mainly up to 1/2lb.

Boat available at 150217.

Loch Bad na Murichinn

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.

Loch Bealach a’ Mhadaidh

The trip to Loch Bealach a' Mhadaidh is not for the unfit, or faint-hearted requiring a walk of seven kilometres from Inchnadamph. All sizes of trout in here but evidently a very good head of bigger fish are present with baskets of these big fish being taken from time to time. It doesn't get fished that often due to it's location but it is one of the best lochs in the area. Although hardly ever caught, salmon can migrate there also.

Loch Bealach na h-Uidhe

530 metres and 1½ hours up the mountain from Inchnadamph, this corrie loch is what trout fishing in Assynt is all about. Some cracking trout in there to put a good bend in the rod and all in a spectacular setting.

Loch Beannach

Boats (2) available at NC141262.

Beannach is an easy 25 minute walk and has a vast population of wild brown trout, but also arctic char and a few salmon and sea trout - although neither of the latter have been reported caught in recent years.

Loch Culag (The School Loch)

Boat ONLY  fishing, located at NC097218

Next to the road just south of Lochinver and home to the local school, Culag has both plenty of hard fighting trout and also migrating salmon and sea trout. Boat only fishing.

Loch Druim Suardalain (The Glen Loch)

Boat ONLY at NC109218.

Easily accessed from Lochinver and a very attractive water with Canisp and Suilven in the background, the Geln Loch has lots of average trout but also salmon and sea trout later in the season.

Loch Feith an Leothaid

A rough 1½ hour walk from Little Assynt will bring you to this large hill loch. Baskets of free rising trout of varying average size are what it’s about here. A great day out.

Loch Fleodach Coire

An hour and twenty minutes from Inchnadamph, this interesting trout loch is set high up with more average sized trout but with better ones being taken not infrequently.
