6 places to enjoy a drink with a view on Argyll’s Secret Coast

6 places to enjoy a drink with a view on Argyll’s Secret Coast
Argyll’s Secret Coast has some fabulous hotel bars and pubs where you can enjoy an alfresco drink this summer, Many are by the coast and have terraces and gardens to make the most of the stunning views. Here are six of the best.

The Oystercatcher is a pub and restaurant on the east banks of Loch Fyne at Otter Ferry. The location is pretty unbeatable, as it sits right on the beach looking out over the loch. The outdoor dining area is a great spot for sunset drinks! In the bar you'll find a wide selection of Scottish craft beers as well as an extensive list of single malt whisky and small batch gin. The beach will keep kids entertained for hours.

Wellpark Hotel’s wonderful seafront beer garden must be the perfect spot for a drink on sunny summer’s day with stunning views across to the island of Bute. Pull up a chair and keep your eyes peeled for porpoises. There’s a fine selection of wines, single malts and local ales available from the Quarterdeck Bar.

Royal an Lochan has an enviable location on the seafront in Tighnabruaich. There’s an outdoor seating area at the front of the hotel with views across the Kyles of Bute. Head to the Shinty Bar for a great choice of local beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks, then sit back in the sunshine and watch the world go by.

Kames Hotel has a spectacular seaside location, with views down the Kyles of Bute to Arran. The friendly bar serves up a huge range of real ales and fine single malts. On a sunny day, the outdoor seating area is the ideal place to unwind and enjoy Argyll at its best.

The Marina Restaurant & Bar at Portavadie sits right on the waterfront and offers panoramic views of Loch Fyne. There’s a wonderful outdoor terrace where you can enjoy a chilled glass of wine, cocktail or local ale while you watch the yachts sail into the marina.

Colintraive Hotel is an award-winning hotel with a fantastic gastro-pub overlooking the Kyles of Bute at the ‘narrows’. Sit outside and watch the ferry sail the short distance over to Bute - reputedly one of the shortest ferry routes in Scotland. The name Colintraive derives from Gaelic and means "swimming strait" or "swimming narrows". In the past, cattle were swum over from the Isle of Bute to Colintraive on their way to the markets of lowland Scotland.
