Admiral Henry Charles Otter became the owner of the Manor House in 1845 and was one of Oban’s most influential characters. The Admiral was responsible for charting the waters of Scotland’s north west coast resulting in the Hebridean Survey, and he had a strong religious influence on and west coast communities and Oban’s townsfolk, some of the latter having been baptised at the spring in the Manor House grounds.
More details on Admiral Otter are available at the Manor House website’s History page and also on Peter Kerr’s informative blog on the historical people, places and events that helped shape the Scottish Western Isles.
