Loch Melfort

16 miles south of Oban, this remote and beautiful sea loch is well worth a visit.

It’s a wonderful place for hill walking and cycling. There are peaceful beaches to stroll along too and a few restaurants, hotels and pubs not far away.

This is an area of stunning natural beauty, teeming with wildlife – sometimes you’ll see otters, seals and porpoises swimming in the loch. Perfect for birdwatching as well.

There are wonderful views from the top of the surrounding hills over the Sound of Jura and many small islands. I'm annoyed I didn't take any better photos than this one last May - hopefully I'll be back there sometime to take better ones!

From Oban you’ll need the A816 south to Kilmelford. Then turn right to Degnish for nearly 2 miles. There are signs for Melfort Pier and Harbour.
