The Lilly Loch, or 'The Lilly' as it's simply referred to by local anglers, is a loch located just outside Airdrie in central Scotland, and is controlled by Clarkston Angling Club. Each season usually lasts about 8 months, from the beginning of March until the last day in October, and is frequently stocked with Rainbow Trout and the occasional stocking of Brown Trout during this time.

The Loch is popular at all points throughout the season with a large number of Clarkston Angling Club members and also with other anglers from surrounding areas, many of which hold season tickets. There are also open competitions held every season which suit both bait and fly anglers. Competition dates can be found on our Competitions page, or alternatively by clicking here.

Aside from being a popular fishing location, the scenic views of surrounding areas combined with numerous public access points and paths make the loch popular with rambling clubs and casual walkers. The surrounding areas of the loch also provide a great natural habitat for Rabbits, Badgers, Foxes, Deer and several species of birds and ducks.

In the interests of safety, please be aware of the nature of the local area, and the ground to the north side of the loch, which is liable to subsidence and rockfall.
