Laird's Loch

Laird's Loch is situated in the Hallyburton Estate, near Coupar Angus, and is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest because of the varied species of plants which grow in and around the loch. Formerly a trout fishery, a ten year lease for the water was assigned to Angus Dragons Angling Club in September 1995.

In agreement with Scottish Natural Heritage, the water now hosts the following species of fish;

Roach and Perch in large numbers, small numbers of Rudd, Bronze Bream, Crucian Carp, King Carp and Tench.

Fishing is for members and guests only.

How to get there

From Dundee, follow the A923 from Camperdown Park, through Birkhill and Muirhead, taking the left fork at the end of the village and head towards Coupar Angus. Immediately after the turn-off for Abernyte at Tullybaccart Farm, there is a Parking area on the left.

The hill behind the Parking area is the Hallyburton Community Woodland, and a signpost shows walking routes up to Laird's Loch. There is a high stile over the boundary fence between the Community Woodland and the parkland surrounding the Loch.
