Places to fish where boats are available.

Cam Loch

This is a large and easily accessible loch on the left of the A835 road from Ullapool, just before the Ledmore Junction. Lots of trout in here, mostly average in size with some larger specimens; also has char and ferox.

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.

Gorm Loch Mor / Gorm Loch Beag

Up in the hills behind Nedd, your best access to this large loch is to take the track heading south from Nedd at NC137319, being careful not to block access for other cars.

At the end of the track is a house and small byre. Proceed due south and then through a cutting between Cnoc Odhar and Cnoc Cailleach Iain which brings you out overlooking Gorm Loch Mor.

There are fish of all sizes here and some good sport to be had with the south/south western shore offfering the easiest casting.


Angling Groups: 

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 a'Bhraighe

Loch a'Bhraighe and Loch Torr na h-Eigin to its west are two large, joined lochs offering great sport in breathtaking surroundings. Not much by way of recent reports, so please let us know your catches.

Loch a'Bhraighe has a boat which is a distinct advantage in covering the large water.

Access is as for Lochan Fearna and Gorm Loch Mor from the track in Nedd and it is easy casting most of the way around, although the south eastern edge of Loch a'Bhraighe is very steep - try here from the boat.
