Loch Arkaig is situated among a stunning setting of hills and old Caledonian Pine forest, and it stretches for 19 km (12 miles). It is located in Lochaber to the west of the Great Glen in Scotland. A road along the north side of the lake provides access for bank fishing and to the south-east, there is a spot for launching boats.
The loch is well known for its trout populations and huge specimen pike. Its size and quiet location means there is always room for visitors to fish during trout season (15th March to 6th October). The best fishing for trout is during April and June; and August to September. If fishing for pike, come from May onwards.
