Created in the nineteen thirties by the flooding of the upper valley of the River Carron, is one of the most scenic trout fisheries in Scotland. Situated high in the Campsie Fells – yet only a ten minute drive from Stirling, half an hour from Glasgow and forty minutes from Edinburgh – the loch offers boat and bank fly fishing for rainbow trout & wild and stocked brown trout in magnificent surroundings.
Almsot four miles long and three quarters of a mile are its widest point and set in an area of outstanding beauty, where the trout angler can spend a day drifting in an out of many productive bays, casting a team of flies in front of solid, traditional, clinker-built boats, with only the ospreys, buzzards, curwels and oyster-catchers for company, or enjoy a leisurely stroll along the bank, where hard fighting trout lie in close in along the varied shoreline just waiting to have a go at a well presented Kate McLaren, Blae and Black or Peter Ross.
