Arrochar & Tarbet

The villages of Arrochar & Tarbet are popular gathering places for mountaineers due to its close proximity to the Arrochar Alps, which offer some of the best climbing in Argyll: Ben Ime (3,318 ft) is the tallest of the range, while Ben Arthur also known as 'The Cobbler' stands at 2891 ft) is easily the most distinctive. 

With excellent road and rail links via the West Highland Line, Arrochar is one of the main gateways to the Argyll Forest Park, whereas walkers coming to Tarbet can link up with Cowal Way and Three Lochs Way and walk north up to Inveruglas and connect back by an afternoon waterbus service via Inversnaid.

Cyclists can pedal south along the West Loch Lomond Cycle Path from Tarbet to Luss and back on a traffic-free path.
