Lochan Nam Breac

RSPB Lochs. Fishing season 1st April to 5th October. Three ‘clear rest days’ between angling days.

Grid Reference: 001 477

Elevation: 167m

Bag Limit: 6 Fish limit (9″ inch minimum).


Leave the A897 at Grid reference 903485 (Forsinain) and follow the forestry track, a 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track, to park at 002 470. Head North for a distance of 500m to reach the loch. Nam Breac is a pleasant little lochan to the west of Skyline, useful for restoring confidence if the skyline trout are proving difficult. Sheltered to the east by forestry, but open to the north and west, Nam Breac is a shallow loch with comfortable wading from the southern and eastern banks. The west bank is very soft and should be avoided. Don’t expect anything for the glass case but a good head of small but spirited fish should keep the angler entertained.

Loch Grassie

Fishing season 1st April to 5th October.

Grid Reference: 030 468

Elevation: 155m

Bag Limit: Catch and Release


Approach from Forsinain via forestry track leading to and beyond Altnabreac. 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track. Continue along track past Loch Caise for 1/2 mile where a sign for Grassie will be found pointing through a forestry ride. A short 5 minute walk through this very wet and boggy ride will bring anglers to the southerly shore – waders are recommended to ensure dry feet! Anglers will encounter fewer fish in the loch’s considerable amount of shallow water in the westerly bay which reaches towards loch Caise, the deeper water extending along the opposite shore will produce most success. A fantastic little loch to visit and combine with either of the nearby lochs for added variation to the day. Grassie holds a smaller head of fish than neighbouring Garbh or Caise but trumps them both on size and quality with fish of over a pound often encountered.

Lochan Croc nan Lair

Fishing season 1st April to 5th October.

Grid Reference: 039 452

Elevation: 144m

Bag Limit: Catch and Release


Leave the A897 at Grid reference 903485 (Forsinain) follow the forestry track, a 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track, to park at 043455. Follow the fence line/forest ride for a 300m walk to reach the loch. The very southern part of the loch is shallow and wading is safe and advantageous though the angler is better off staying on the bank on the east and west banks. The east bank has proved to be productive in the past though fish have been caught all over the loch. Due to the nature of this loch it is unlikely to hold a large head of fish, expect fish in the region 10oz-1lb though don’t be surprised by something significantly larger!

Loch Garbh

Fishing season 1st April to 5th October.

Grid Reference: 036 468

Elevation: 147m

Bag Limit: 6 Fish limit (9″ inch minimum)


Grid Reference & Parking 12/036468. Approach from Forsinain via forestry track leading to and beyond Altnabreac. 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track. Park in small trackside area opposite sleeper built footbridge. A short 3-4 minute walk north over tussocks and uneven ground will bring anglers to the loch’s southerly shore, boat users should follow the loch a couple of hundred yards around the east shore to find the boat mooring. Loch Garbh, with its large head of spirited, free rising fish in the 9″-12″ region is the perfect place to introduce anyone to fly fishing. Boat and bank both yield good catches, though care is needed when wading over rocky patches on west side.

Loch Caise

Fishing season 1st April to 5th October.

Grid Reference: 025 466

Elevation: 153m

Bag Limit: 6 Fish limit (9″ inch minimum)


Grid Reference & Parking 12/023467. Approach from Forsinain via forestry track leading to and beyond Altnabreac. 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track. Both bank and boat fishing is available on this little gem of a loch, and with loch side parking in the SW corner, this is one of the most delightful pieces of water an angler could visit. Fat, brightly marked, little fish rise readily and give a good account of themselves in the process. With the exception of the less productive west bank, fish are caught all around the loch in good numbers, larger concentrations are often encountered in both the north and south ends.

Loch Caol Altnabreac

RSPB Lochs. Fishing season 1st April to 5th October. Three ‘clear rest days’ between angling days.

Grid Reference: 025 485

Elevation: 158m

Bag Limit: 6 Fish limit (9″ inch minimum)


Leave the A897 at Grid reference 903485 (Forsinain) follow the forestry track, a 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track, to park at 018473. Follow what was a forest ride for a distance of 800m to reach the stile over the deer fence. The loch lies a further 400m to the north.  The narrow, southern part of the loch is shallow and the least productive, otherwise the angler can cast with confidence in any part of the loch. Caol is one of the few lochs where fishing from a boat is a significant advantage. There is a good head of bright, hard fighting fish with the average size in the region of 10oz with fish up to 2lb not being uncommon.

Loch Skyline

RSPB Lochs. Fishing season 1st April to 5th October. Three ‘clear rest days’ between angling days.

Grid Reference: 011 479

Elevation: 196m

Bag Limit: Catch and Release


Leave the A897 at Grid reference 903485 (Forsinain) follow the forestry track, a 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track, to park at 011475. The loch is a short 150m walk in a NE direction. There is not a large head of fish in Skyline and anglers can expect more blank than productive days though fish caught are of outstanding quality up to 2lb in weight with the occasional larger specimen. Fish can be caught all over the loch but start fishing well back as fish can lie tight to the bank. Please note that the bank can be rather ‘soggy’ which some anglers could find difficult and may prefer to use the boat available.
