Welcome to Lillyloch.co.uk, the website of Clarkston Angling Club.

Since being Established in 1982, we have ran The Lilly Loch, which is located at Hillend, just 10 minutes drive from Airdrie, North Lanarkshire. The loch is a popular trout fishing location amongst many local anglers, and is conveniently situated for those anglers travelling from other areas throughout the central belt by road or rail.

The loch is stocked regularly throughout the season with rainbow trout and can be fished using a number of methods. Boats are also available for fly fishing, along with a section of the loch which is dedicated to fly anglers.

We hope that this website provides you with all the information you need about Clarkston Angling Club and fishing at The Lilly Loch, such as how to find us, ticket prices, competition dates and fishing methods. If you have any further questions, please use our Enquiries page, and we will respond to your questions as quickly as possible.

Tight Lines, Clarkston Angling Club.


There have been instances since the beginning of this season where anglers have been found to be fishing with more than one rod at a time, therefore we would like to politely remind all anglers of the following:

Only ONE ROD can be fished by an angler AT ANY ONE TIME. This is one of the rules of the loch, all of which are clearly printed on all permits and are also within the 'Tickets' page on this website. The purpose of us providing anglers with written access to these rules is so that they can take a few minutes to familiarise themselves with all of them, so to say that you 'didn't know' you couldn't fish more than one rod is not an acceptable excuse.

From now on, any angler caught fishing more than one rod who is a season ticket holder will have their season ticket confiscated and will be asked to leave the loch. Any angler caught fishing more than one rod who has a day permit will be asked to leave the loch.
