OTTER FERRY
Cockleshell 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.
 
The sturdy whitewashed building is surrounded by plenty of outdoor tables which take advantage of the beautiful views over the loch on fine days.

We had a great week at Cockleshell lodge, such a peaceful and relaxing place to stay.
Amazing views and sunsets, lovely walks around the estate.
We were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed sitting out on the deck for morning coffee and enjoying the activity on the Loch most mornings.
Would love to return.

June 2021
Had a fabulous week up here on the shores of Loch Fyne. The lodge is a little tired in places (not that it affects anything) but the location and views more than make up for it. It's just stunning and everyone is so friendly as they walk past. Will definitely come and stay again.

 

Relaxing days at Cockleshell Lodge

May 2021
We stayed for a long weekend at the lodge and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and friendly welcome. Even though the weather was not perfect the lodge was cosy and comfortable with everything we needed and the pub at the end of the road (Oystercatcher Inn) had excellent service and food. Thank you very much for a lovely holiday.

 

Excellent!

May 2021
A beautiful and peaceful break. The views are spectacular from the lounge area and the lodge is comfortable and warm (the weather was mostly sunny but very cold for May). The log burner was just the job! The pub is close by - an easy stroll and serves excellent simple food. We have booked to come back in November.

 

A lovely peaceful location August 2020
Second time I have stayed here. The view is spectacular and the location is stunning. The lodge is comfortable and well equipped. It would be a nice touch to have a welcome food pack with essentials. I am sure people must turn up not realising how far it is to the nearest shop! The booking process is efficient, friendly and helpful. Just hope they can all keep going in these uncertain times. Very happy to support them by holidaying here.

 

A stunning setting August 2020
Cockleshell is a very comfortable and spacious lodge in an absolutely glorious setting. It is a long way from shops and busy places- perfect for a restful holiday! Great walks, swimming in the loch, boating etc. Owner Tristan is lovely and on hand for any problems.

 

Loch Fyne

4.5/5 star Upfront review April 2019

Super location, views and easy access to a splendid restaurant meant this was well worth the journey to get there.

 

Lovely cottage

4 star Upfront review Aug 2018

A beautiful location, couldn’t have asked for more stunning views. We enjoyed walking & exploring the estate & the amazing sunsets. This cottage is perfect if you want to ‘escape from it all’ and enjoy walking. The only thing I would say to anyone staying here is to make sure you are well stocked up on supplies before you arrive as the nearest shop is 13 miles away with a main supermarket over an hour’s drive so you can’t just ‘pop out’ if you need something!

 

Lovely weekend break

5 star Upfront review Sept 2017

The lodge was very welcoming and comfortable, we were surprised how spacious it was. The location was so beautiful and we were lucky enough to have some good weather. The living area could be doing with a couple of extra lamps as the main lighting was too bright in the evening, although this did not impact whatsoever on our stay The dogs loved it as did we and we will most definitely return.

 

A very relaxing break

5 star Upfront review August 2017

The lodge is very well equipped and comfortable. The view from the lounge is breathtaking and we never tired of watching the water and the approaching weather! A great place to chill and unwind with a lovely pub just a short walk away. Perfect!
