Leave the A836 Thurso/Bettyhill road about 600 meters west of Melvich at grid reference 868651. A gate code must be obtained to access the track that you follow south for about 4 or 5km. This is a rough track so a 4×4 will be necessary to drive to the end and park at 859626. Walk in a southerly direction, past Loch Baligill, keeping to the high ground for a distance of 1.2km.
Loch Achridigill is a very productive loch for all fishing levels. A boat which will be found on the NW shore is available if booked in advance, otherwise a rocky shoreline requires careful wading but the rocks hold many trout very close in from 6oz to 10oz with the odd larger fish further out. The loch level used to be several feet higher and the east end is shallow and studded with rocks so be very careful when boat fishing. Bags of 50+ may be caught and fish may be kept for the pot.
