Around and About

Situated in the beautiful northern reaches of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, The Otter is ideal for walking, climbing, fishing and boating holidays.  Ben More is adjacent to Portnellan and a top spot for Geocaching.  Portnellan also has its own castle ruin located on a small island on Loch Dochart.
