Our Loch Melfort location
 
Loch Melfort is one of the series of many sea lochs along the western seaboard of Scotland. It has safe sailing waters with direct access to the Firth of Lorn, which itself leads into the coaster and ferry ports of OBAN, fort william, tobermory etc. The area is within easy motoring or sailing distance of many well known Scottish historical and scenic places. Visits are suggested to OBAN, iona, MULL, crinan canal, fort william, the trossachs, glen coe. The islands of colonsay, tiree and coll, are easy trips by the islands steamer from oban.
 
Nearer at hand are interesting walks, some strenuous, some easy. Following the shoreline or ascending the hills. Everywhere there is natural beauty and wildlife. Angling in the many Hill lochs, tucked away in the surrounding Hills is possible; however permission and licences must be sought. The Loch is suitable for your own water activities - windsurfing - sailing - canoeing - sub aqua and water skiing. We have a small slipway for visitors use. Pony trekking and Instruction is also available in the area.
 
The views of the Melfort area from sea level are beautiful but from the top of the Melfort Hills they are spectacular. In clear weather you can see as far east as Ben More above Crianlarich, south nearly as far as Rathlin Island off Northern Ireland and equally far to the north and west. Even in poorer weather there are wonderful views of the Sound of Jura, the Firth of Lorne, the Sound of Mull and myriad islands in between.
 
Take this opportunity to enjoy this stunning panorama and with the hope of seeing some of the wildlife of the Melfort Hills which includes Red and Roe Deer, Wild Cats, Foxes, Arctic Hare and a wide variety of bird life.
