Otter Ferry is a small community of scattered whitewashed farms, fishermen's cottages and grander houses set along the shore of Loch Fyne in Argyll on the Cowal Peninsula
The small community of Otter Ferry is in Argyll and Bute. It was founded around the former ferry which ran across Loch Fyne to Port Anne in Knapdale. Steamers stopped here in the early 20th century and the passenger ferry ran until the late 1940s.
Otter Ferry is situated on the B8000 on the east shore of the loch on the Cowal Peninsula also known as Argyll's Secret Coast. The old Otter Ferry Pier still stands, overlooking the loch waters. The nearest ferry now is 9 miles away at Portavadie where it runs across the loch to Tarbert.
One of the most impressive buildings in the hamlet is the castle-like Ballimore House, now a B&B still owned by the original owners - the McRaes. They serve you breakfast!
