Leave the A836 Thurso/Bettyhill road in Strathy at Grid reference 841650 and drive south, staying on the east side of the river. A 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track. Either park at around 7km and walk uphill out past the southern end of Loch Caol for 50 minutes or stay on the track for a distance of 9km to park at 827565. Follow the fence line uphill in an ENE direction for a strenuous 700m, at the top of the hill continue travelling ENE to reach the loch after a further 1km walk. Visiting anglers should carry the relevant OS map and a compass.
Little is known about the fishing in Bo Uidhre. It is one for the adventurous angler as it does not hold a large head of fish. The banks have a shallow gradient consisting of large rocks so wading is extremely treacherous and what fish are there are likely to be further out. No boat is available. Combine with other lochs in the area for an adventurous day out.
