boatsG.jpgVenachar Lochside, is the perfect location to enjoy a days fishing, offering superb facilities in fantastic surroundings..

Loch Venachar is approximately 6km long and 1km wide with about 1000 acres of water, situated just to the west of Callander.

Bank and boat fishing is permitted on the loch, with the best results from a boat.

Fishing is available from our boats or from certain parts of the Loch shore. Most trout anglers benefit from the superb conditions for fly fishing but other methods are permitted too. Boat fishing allows Pike and Trout anglers to reach all parts of this beautiful water.

The loch provides many ideal and interesting bays to fish - at the western end  of the loch, long uninterrupted drifts can be achieved, casting into a depth of 6 to 8 feet - great conditions for Brown Trout.
