Loch Feochan

There really seems little particular to do or see around this loch. Furthermore the main road between Oban and Lochgilphead runs along one shore which makes it noisy. But the entrance is quite fun, much easier since it was buoyed some years ago. In the old days, as Frank Cowper put it "As this loch is barred in two places, and twists considerably with a very narrow channel, I don't think it is suitable for a general cruise".


On the port side, just before the suddenly shallow bit, the single white cottage was used for the film of Ring of Bright Water (based on the classic otter book by Gavin Maxwell). It is now a very pricey holiday cottage.  Ardoran Marine in Ardentallen Bay is a smallish boatyard and there are visitor moorings (ph 01631 566 123). You can walk from here up to 'The Barn' which is a slightly eccentric pub in a converted cattle byre with good food, and holiday chalets (at Cologin on the OS map) (ph 01631 564 501) — through the farm, up the road, and then up a track to the left, just over a mile.
