Clamshell Lodge is on the east side of Loch Fyne on the B8000, about 16 miles south of Strachur and close to Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Otter Ferry itself is a quiet backwater but is within easy reach of Inveraray, Bute, Loch Lomond and Dunoon. The drive down the lochside to Tighnabruaich must be one of the most beautiful in Scotland.
The small communities along Loch Fyne are known for their oyster fishing and fine restaurants which offer this delicacy. Close to the small community of Otter Ferry is the Otter Ferry Seafish business, one of several fish farms and hatcheries in the area.  The well-known Oystercatcher restaurant in Otter Ferry is in a beautiful location right on the beach and offers first class food and award-winning real ales brewed locally in the nearby Fyne Ales Brewery at the top of Loch Fyne.   

5/5 Upfront Reviews - April 2022
Perfect location - yes it's miles from anywhere but bring your supplies and you'll never need anything!
We had various days out at beaches, and did the ferry to Tarbet one day.
Kids swam in the loch and played on the rope swing.
Perfectly appointed kitchen (could have used some scissors and sharp knives but it's a little thing). Beds were really comfy and never heard a peep from the children after all the Scottish air!
Will definitely be back.
Thanks so much for Tristan's help when we had a flat battery on the day we left! absolute gem!


A wonderful peaceful haven
5/5 Upfront Reviews - Feb 2022
The Clamshell is a lovely comfy lodge in a setting that is breath taking, whatever the weather. We immediately felt relaxed and at peace. The lodge owner was amazing and on hand if needed. The Oystercatcher at Otter Ferry a must for super food, drinks and service, just a 20 minute walk away. Come prepared with supplies of food and drinks and then simply relax and enjoy. The best short break we have had in a long time. We will be back. Thank you.
