Loch Mhoalach-coire (‘Loch Gillaroo’)

Taking about an hour and a half to reach from the Inchnadamph car park and once known as The Gilaroo Loch, this is a relatively small loch with limestone bed. Historical catches of big fish over 5lbs are recorded and shown locally in glass cases in hotels and although the average is much more modest today you never know when the next big one could strike!

Loch na Barrack

A 7km/2 hour rough trek from Glencanisp will bring you to Loch Barrack and its immediate neighbour, Loch a Choire Dhuibh at the northwestern end of Suilven. Spectacular scenery, a chain of smaller lochans, and average sized golden trout with larger fish being taken commonly.

Loch na Beinne Reidhe

An hour and a half from Inchnadamph, this loch contains fat trout of excellent average size to put a good bend in the rod. This combines a great loch with a great day out.

Loch na Faoileige (The Gull Loch)

A tough hour and a half walk from the A837, Loch na Faoileige is a small loch in dramatic scenery with good numbers of nicely sized trout in it.

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 Uidh na Geadaig

Directions: Park by the river at NC143253 and head north across the road. Lots of small fish and can be the start of a walk onto Loch Beannach (which is best fished from a boat) and/or Loch Bad nan Aighean.

Loch Veyatie

A long, thin, roadside loch with lots of trout of varying size. 30+ fish of average size per day is not uncommon but there are much better ones to be caught in there amongst them. Also has shoals of char and some ferox - some leviathans lurk here!

Lochan a Choire Ghuirm (Green Corrie Lochs)

One of the most renowned lochs in Assynt set in spectacular scenery, at 550m this is a stiff walk even for the fit. However, it can be worth the walk as the average size in this loch is very good indeed and there are much bigger ones in there too!

Lochan Bealach Cornaidh

Bealach a' Chornaidh separates the northern peak from the eastern ridge of Quinaig, set in the valley floor. Sometimes dour, it has silvery fish of good average size with much better fish being taken from time to time with the occasional 'dog' of a fish turning up in a fisher's basket!
