We have a heated lodge, with toilet facilities for the disabled, as well as a sitting area and a selection of snacks and hot and cold drinks. Car parking is right beside the lodge, and 30 metres from the lochs, but disabled anglers are welcome to drive right up to the edge of the water.

Coarse Loch - 08.30am to 5pm

This loch is NOT an alternative to the bait/childrens loch.It is a specialised sport and anglers supply all their own tackle and baits.We do not have any hire rods or coarse tackle for this loch.No Bread/tiger nuts/hemp or heavy groundbaiting is not allowed.No bait is supplied at all.
We will also check all tackle the first time you fish it to ensure it is the correct tackle and not spinning,or beach caster type rods,bubble floats and pike gear is a no no as there is no pike!.Hook size is important and no hooks above size 12 allowed and must be barbless.
The key is to fish light,size 18,s,20 hooks best.Pole fishing is very good.

Children aged 12 and under are not allowed on the Coarse loch.

It has taken 18 years to get this loch to what it is and all the fish are healthy,so it is paramount that care is taken when releasing them
