Grid Reference: 957 471

Exclusion zone applies in SE half until mid August.
Approach from Forsinain via forestry track leading towards Altnabreac. A 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track. Using a map for reference, park in the ample space found 50m after crossing the burn which flows solely from Slethill. Following the lightly trodden path NE on an easy 5-10 minute walk over flat ground will bring anglers to the loch’s outflow in the SW corner where the boat may be launched from. A highly regarded loch yielding beautiful, hard fighting fish averaging 3/4lb – 1lb. Wading essential when bank fishing as shallow water extends well beyond casting distance in much of the very productive south and west banks. Large weed beds in the loch’s centre provide a rich habitat for the trout from June – September, concentrating all around the weed’s perimeter can be fantastic sport while trying to keep hooked fish from finding the sanctuary of cover.
