A magical loch, especially in the evening or early morning - Cul Fraioch is difficult but rewarding. It can be very dour and even when 'on' the trout can be hard to catch. However, they are high quality, with deep pink flesh and there are some specimens of around 3lb caught every year.
There is a boat located at the northern end (NC335023).
Overcast days are best and often the evening is the time to head up here.
Go through Culkein and park on the track that leads up to the loch, but beware of heading along the track as it can be diffficult to park and is rough in places.
