Scan the loch at any time of day when passing as otters are found here at anytime. This is one of the best freshwater lochs in Uist to find them although timing of activity is unpredictable. Look for alarmed waterfowl or gulls hovering over one spot as these can indicate an otter is feeding in the loch.
