Loch Fyne is well known for diving and sea fishing and the changing shoreline, myriad small bays, islands and shoals offer interesting paddling for kayaks or canoes.
The Loch is within easy reach along farm and forestry tracks and footpaths via part of the Brainport Heritage trail for walking or mountain biking. The shoreline is rocky along much of the coastal path but it opens out into a sheltered shingle bay at Brainport where you can spot seabirds, herons, seals and occasionally an otter at play.
For those of you who require access to the water, there is a small car park with trailer launch access from the compacted pebble shore at the head of Minard village. This car park is also the start of a shore walk that heads towards Brainport Bay and meanders through the woodland to join the circular heritage trail.Barr Cottage (self-catering accommodation) near Minard is within easy reach of Inveraray and Lochgilphead, 12 miles equidistant, and a perfect base from which to explore the ancient Kingdom of Dalriada, Knapdale, the Crinan Canal, Kilmartin and on to Oban, the Gateway to the Isles.
