Laga Bay is a residential village with 3 businesses at its hub, 'Ardnamurchan Charters Ltd', Laga Farm and Laga Fishfarm. From the water Laga Bay appears to be the result of glacial erosion due to the large U-shaped valley leading down to it. It hosts a wide variety of wildlife including sea otters, golden eagles, pine martins, a vast number of sea and garden birds and currently a large number of red deer. Although residential this bay has several houses old and new, most currently used as either second homes or holiday lets. It has one post box situated at Laga Burn, and one fresh water loch up the hillside called Loch Laga that has been known to produce fish. In the summer months large shoals of feeding mackerel bubble metres from the shore line in Laga Bay, Loch Sunart.
