LOCH Lomond is now home to an ‘otterly’ adorable new guest.

A residential volunteer with the area’s RSPB-owned national nature reserve spotted an otter cub swimming whilst out for a walk last week and posted a social media clip which has attracted thousands of views.

The lone baby can be seen enjoying a leisurely swim in the video which has since been watched more than 10,000 times.

Otters are a protected species so the cub’s exact location isn’t being revealed. However, staff at the reserve welcome visitors to the nature reserve sharing any sightings.
