See & Do

See and Do

Some people come to Loch Melfort Hotel to do nothing more strenuous than gaze at the view and bask in the unique west coast atmosphere, relax by a roaring log fire, potter over to see the Highland cows, read a book or just fall asleep.

For others, Loch Melfort Hotel is one of the best country house hotels near Oban for making the most of the West Coast of Scotland’s many attractions.

Find your pleasure getting out and about, walking, sailing, fishing, painting, taking photos, bird watching or going further afield and enjoying the spectacular countryside and exciting activities on offer in the Oban and Lorn area.

Perhaps, though, the greatest attraction of our gentle wilderness is simply the chance to relax, to take life slowly in an atmosphere of profound calm. The weather is mild, even in winter, and guests at Loch Melfort hotel (and their pets) are free to wander as they please through the woods and over the hills.

The short walk down to the sea takes you to a sandy, pebbly bay, where moorings are offered for boats of up to thirty-five feet (Lat 56-13-907 – Long 5-33-177).

Five Must Sees:

  • NTS Arduaine Garden
