FISHING ON LIMESTONE LOCHS
Loch Lanlish Is approached from the car park at Balnakeil with a short walk of about 10 minutes. Loch Lanlish is the smallest of the 4 limestone lochs lying on the Durness golf course. A severe loch, commonly fished at night with a big fish reputation, averaging over 3 lbs, and up to 8lbs, with fish to 14lb having been caught but more likely to frustrate than reward as they are virtually impossible to catch. Strong leaders, huge amounts of luck and patience are the key ingredients. The wind in this corner of Scotland can be very strong and this loch with its open aspect can be difficult to fish, but it is worth the effort when you hook up to a fighting source of power that will take skill to land. Although Lanlish produces huge fish, only a few are caught each year.
