Loch Buidhe and Loch Lagain

There are two lochs in the Dornoch area that we sell permits for, both within easy reach from the town centre to the loch side. There is also the River Carnaig/Fleet for which we can sell permits for salmon fishing.

Follow the Loch Laggan road out from Bonar Bridge for about 6 miles from Bonar Bridge until you come to the Loch by the roadside on your left. You cannot miss the Loch, its waters are yards from the main road, with ample parking on the grass next to the Loch. The association’s boats are moored next to the parking, they are 13 foot Orkney Spinners.

The two lochs , Loch Buidhe (“Booey”) and Loch Laggain (“Lagan”) are within a half hour’s drive and cars can be taken to the lochside, the boats being within a short walking distance. Good quality brown trout are available on Loch Buidhe with smaller fish on Loch Laggain, both lochs enjoying fine scenery and good sport. A delightful easily accessible loch with good brown trout averaging 8oz and the occasional salmon and sea trout late in the season. Boats available.

Dornoch District Angling Club can provide fishing to suit all tastes with its wide selection of waters. Lochs Laoigh and Loch Lannsaidh are close to the Town, and are both stocked in addition to the natural supply – Lannsaidh with rainbows and Laoigh with brown trout, Salmon and Sea Trout fishing, Wild Brown Trout fishing and for the more adventurous angler Loch Laro and Lochs Cracail Mor and Beag require from half to three quarters of an hour walk from the car, but offer splendid fishing for brownies.

Permits can currently only be sold for bank fishing at these lochs. Bank fishing is still allowed at Littleferry (south side only). Littleferry is a tidal estuary offering Sea-Trout fishing by spinning or fly.

All permits are available from The Dornoch Petshop, Castle Street. A more detailed booklet on the Association’s fishing is also available from Dornoch Outdoor. Fly and bait fishing is also available at Dornoch Lochans, one mile West of Dornoch, with all equipment available.

Fishing permits also available from The Kyle of Sutherland Angling Association (KOSAA)

Loch Buidhe lies 530 feet above sea-level and sudden squalls can develop from nowhere. Great care is needed when fishing from a boat. A drogue is recommended. Although the road runs along the entire length of the South side of the Loch traffic is extremely light and you are likely to fish undisturbed. Ospreys are occasionally seen.
