Fearnach Bay House is situated in a stunning position in a secluded corner of our 250 acre private estate on Loch Melfort on the West Coast of Scotland. With only a 30 minute drive from Oban, it is a great base from which to explore Argyll and the islands of the Inner Hebrides.

The house has been built to a high standard and offers everything you could wish for in the way of peace and relaxation. The comfortable open plan ground floor living space is suitable for wheelchair users and has underfloor heating throughout as well as a log burner.

Discover some of Scotland's wonderful wildlife without leaving the window seat in the living room. Visitors to our garden include woodpeckers, oyster catchers and red squirrels whilst out on the loch there are grey seals and regular sightings of a family of otters. Binoculars are provided together with comprehensive books on bird watching and nature activities.
