Situated in the heart of Clyde Murshiel Park, Queenside Loch is a typical
hill loch. Small brown trout predominate, but fish over the pound mark
are present and occassionally caught.
The loch is a good forty minute walk from the visitors car park and
should only be undertaken by those of a robust nature, the views and
the fishing make it a worthwhile walk. Ask for directions from the visitor
centre or just follow the path, over the River Calder and on for about
1 mile. Look out for the white post on the left hand side of the path
(see picture) and follow the burn up to the loch.
Typically it fishes better on a bright calm day with small black bushy
flies a good starting point. Early morning and late evening provide
the best sport with the trout very free rising if the conditions are
Strictly flyfishing only.
