Loch Nell

Loch Nell is only 10 minutes south of Oban, one mile from the A816 at Kilmore, and is around two miles in length.

IThe northern end of the loch is fairly shallow and is good for fly fishing for brown trout. The southern end drops off to over 90ft in depth and is home to a population of arctic char, which can be caught trolling.

There are runs of sea trout and salmon throughout the year which are dependant on spate conditions in the River Nell which runs into Loch Feochan. There is a large population of small brown trout that average around 6oz. This is perhaps a result of the lack of management in recent years.

We believe that this loch, with its close proximity to Oban and it's beautiful surroundings, could be a real asset to the local area. Appropriate fisheries management could contribute towards the loch being a decent venue for accessible game fishing in the Oban area.
