North Connel from the south shore

North Connel is a hamlet on the north side of Loch Etive in Argyll and Bute, Scotland.

Connel Bridge connects the community to Connel on the south shore of the loch, 7 kilometres from Oban.[1] While the bridge belonged to British Rail, a toll was charged to cross and it closed at night.[citation needed] Once sparsely populated, the number of houses in North Connel quickly increased after the bridge was handed over to Argyllshire County Council in the late 1960s.[citation needed]

Oban Airport or Connel Airfield is nearby.[2]
