The Lilly Loch is located on the main A89 road, around 5 miles East of Airdrie, at Hillend. Car parking is available opposite the Owl & Trout Country Inn. The loch is only 500m from the road, and is reached by following the signposted public right of way, which takes between five and ten minutes. The loch is not visible from the road, but all is revealed on arrival at the dam. From here you can see the hut, where day tickets and boat hire are available. There is a jetty at the hut to allow disabled anglers to fish there.

If you are travelling by public transport there is a regular bus service which stops at the Owl & Trout. Call Traveline Scotland on 0871 200 22 33 for times.

There is a railway station at Caldercruix, with two trains an hour each way from Glasgow and Edinburgh. Check National Rail Enquiries or Traveline Scotland for times and prices.

There are two tackle shops in Airdrie, the nearest being Airdrie Angling Centre which is on the A89 en route to the loch from Airdrie. It stocks a wide range of tackle, including rods, reels, clothing and live bait. If coming from the east, there are two tackle shops in Armadale, with Liveline on the A89 being the most convenient.

The village of Caldercruix, only a two minute drive from the car park has convenience stores, post office, a doctors surgery, pubs and take-away food. There is a petrol station just off the A89 in Airdrie, on Carlisle Road. Airdrie town centre has a variety of shops to suit most needs.
