A new version of an Otty Lake Map was produced in 2021 for residents. This 18″ x 24″ map is essentially an update of the 2010 map, with island names included, shoals marked, and a 30 m zone noted, as well as a few other changes. Maps are being provided free of charge to paid up OLA members through the area counsellors. The cost for non-members, or for extra copies, is $5.00. Please contact Ian McDonald for details.

Linton Family Map
Bruce Linton shared this map with us: “We have this map of Otty Lake that has been in my wife’s family for over 60 to 70 years. It has hung over the fireplace in the old cottage and now in our home. One of the things that I found interesting on it was that the island that we go to for a swim at every summer because of the nice sandy beach is called Bell’s Island.” The official name of this island is Cloverleaf.
