Otter Ferry & Kilfinan

On the eastern shore of Loch Fyne, Otter Ferry commands specular views across the loch. Take a stroll around the bay, from the old pier and along the pebbly beach, to the Oitir Spit, and watch seabirds reel over the water, whilst seals pops their heads above the surface, to spy on you from the depths.

If you’ve worked up an appetite after your walk, head back to the local pub. The Oystercatcher, and enjoy great, locally sourced food, and perhaps a drink or two, whilst you watch the sun set over the beach as yachts drop anchor in the bay.

Over in Kilfinan, you’ll find a picturesque 13th century church, the burial place of the clan chiefs of the Lamonts, a large lime kiln, and the Kilfinan Hotel, which has been welcoming guests for more than 300 years.

Whilst you’re there, pull on your hiking boots and explore Kilfinan Community Forest, which offers a variety of woodland walks on well maintained trails.
