Loch an Aigeil

Directions: Right next to the B869 in Stoer, on your right if you are heading north opposite Stoer Bay on your left.

It was for years reputed to have very few, if any, fish in it. However, there have been reports recently of decent trout being caught there.

Accessibility - Family Loch
Very easily accessed. There isn’t a huge amount of fishable shoreline, but a nice spot for youngsters to cast a line and is close to the beach at Stoer.
