Keys can be collected on the day of fishing, from 8am and must be returned after fishing each evening. (Hotel doors are open until midnight). Scotland's Hotel - Google map.

Loch Bhac lies in commercially afforested hills above Loch Tummel with extensive views north across the valley of the River Garry to the Bheinn a Ghlo mountains. Access to this very attractive 12 ha stocked fishery, which lies on a limestone outcrop, is along a forestry track off the B8019 which runs along the north shore of Loch Tummel (see map). Takeable rainbow trout have been stocked there for many years and are the main quarry, but a few of the native brown trout also appear in the catches from time to time. The two boats kept at this loch are available from Pitlochry Angling Club for booking by visitors, also three bank rods. The loch is relatively sheltered by trees so rowing is easy. Electric outboards are allowed.  Bear in mind, however, that the battery and outboard have to transported down from the car park to the loch (about 300 metres) and you may like to bring a large-wheeled trolley!

Only fly-fishing is permitted and the usual rainbow trout tactics and flies/lures are employed. Standard wet flies will often be successful but, if conditions are right, buzzers and dries can be deadly, especially in the late afternoon and evening.

Even when nothing seems to be working you can just sit back in the boat and enjoy the spectacular views and watch the ospreys show you how to catch the fish.
