Ardoran Marine is a boatyard 5 miles South of Oban on Loch Feochan, on Scotland's beautiful rugged West Coast. By road or rail it is only 2 to 3 hours North of Glasgow. Oban is the main ferry terminal to the Western Isles and is also known as the 'Gateway to the Isles'. You can find us on Admiralty charts 2387 at 56º 2150N 5º 2950W.
Ardoran Marine was established in 1986 and is situated on the secluded and undisturbed shores of Loch Feochan. There are three self-catering chalets and a small farm of almost 200 acres of hill land breeding pedigree Highland cattle and sheep, which also form part of the family run business.
At the entrance to the Loch is the cottage featured in the films 'Ring of Bright Water' and 'Enigma' and the Loch is home to otters, along with seals, heron , buzzards and occasionally white tailed sea eagles . The Rock of the Dead is located at the Southern end of the Loch and is where, centuries ago, the Kings of Scotland were carried out across the Firth of Lorn to their last resting place on Iona.
