Immerse yourself in Tarbert

The village of Tarbert has a lot to offer, the harbour itself is a picturesque attraction – you can admire the yachts on the marina pontoons as well as the Tarbert fishing fleet, which remains active today. The fishing heritage is of utmost importance to the personality and character of the village, while the larder of Loch Fyne and beyond keeps the restaurants well stocked with the freshest of seafood.

Enjoy some retail therapy in the lovely gift shops and art galleries in Lochgilphead and Tarbert, before heading off for a coffee at a relaxing café with a sea view. Take time to wander up around the remains of Tarbert castle and watch the fishing boats land their catch of langoustine, scallops and fresh crab at the quay.

Getting Here

The main way to travel to and from Kintyre is by car or by bus via the A82 and then the A83 with a short ferry trip to Gigha from Tayinloan on the Kintyre peninsula.

Or if you are travelling from Southern Scotland, why not sail from Ayrshire to Campbeltown using the CalMac ferry link? This connects with the Glasgow train service.

Or cross by ferry via Arran or Cowal to Kintyre – allowing you to explore much more of the west coast.
