Loch Arklet is 12 miles west of Aberfoyle on the B829 road to Inversnaid and Stronachlachar. Follow the single track road from Kinlochard to a T junction. Turn left at the T junction towards Inversnaid and you will see Arklet on the left hand side. The hire boats at £20 per day are to be found at the Inversnaid end at the far side of the dam. The loch itself is about 2.5 miles by 0.5 and it is only allowed to fly fish from boats. There are 3 boats for hire at the moment and it should be noted that boats with petrol engines are not allowed as this is part of the public water supply. However electric engines are available to hire
at a relatively low cost.

is advisable although not necessary. The cost per boat with
2 anglers is £40.00 Monday to Friday and £45.00 on Saturday
tackle shop is probably in Callander about 25 miles away.
loch, Loch Arklet, has a reputation for good catches although the average weight
per fish is usually under 1lb (brown Trout), however most days you
could expect to catch about 6 to 12 fish per rod depending upon the
local weather. Do keep a good eye out for the local wildlife as it
is not unusual to see an osprey swoop down to take a fish. This is
also home to feral goats, although recently there has been some
controversy over the culling of the animals by a well known so
called conservation agency.
