Tarbert Castle and Walks
Tarbert Castle is a scheduled monument of national importance because of the major role
which Robert the Bruce King of Scotland played in its reinforcement and enlargement in
1325. The castle location is an excellent spot for a family picnic and there are lovely clearly
marked walks further up the hillside, including the first section of the Kintyre Way.
Remember to bring your camera as the views from the castle over Tarbert harbour and Loch
Fyne are magnificent. Look out for the resident lawnmowers - a flock of Hebridean black
sheep who provide conservation grazing on the site.
