Otter Bay description

Sitting on the shores of Loch Melfort with wonderful views and direct access to the loch, Otter Bay is a contemporary detached holiday home. From the shore, small boats or kayaks can be launched or beachcombing along the pebbly coastline is a popular pastime. There are plenty of walks and a variety of organised water sports nearby. Kilmelford has a small shop, post office and hotel with pub, whilst Kilmartin Glen is steeped in history, and rich in archaeological and historical remains.

The area is exceptional for wildlife watching and is a hot spot for porpoise, dolphins, minke whales and basking sharks. Bird watching highlights include sea eagles, golden eagles and puffins, while otters, seals, and deer can be seen along the shore. Surrounded by beautiful scenery, rugged glens and sea lochs this is truly an ideal base for exploring the west coast of Scotland.

Nearby Oban has a good variety of shops, a leisure centre and a choice of excellent seafood restaurants. From Oban there are plenty of ferries to the Inner Hebrides, including Mull, Iona, Staffa and Tiree. Lochgilphead and the Kintyre Peninsula are also easily reached.
