Local information

Tarbert is a small fishing village located in a central location in the west of Argyll.

Lying between Inveraray, Campbeltown and Oban - Tarbert is an ideal location not only to explore Argyll and Kintyre but also to be able to connect to other parts of Scotland such as Cowal (Tighnabruaich, Kilfinan and Dunoon), and also Islay, Arran or Gigha by one of the Calmac ferries, all within easy reach.

Tarbert sits in a natural amphitheatre surrounded by heather covered hills opens up before them opposite a new marina at Portavadie expanding options for visiting boats and is overlooked by the ruined castle of Robert The Bruce which in turn overlooks Loch Fyne.

The harbour itself is central to the village and is the hub of the working community, home to a small but productive fishing fleet and a harbour with facilities and berths available for passing and long term stays.

The inner harbour contains a traditional stone wall designed and built by Thomas Telford and has had new walls and seating added in recent times.

Sailing visitors to Tarbert, Loch Fyne, will find a small but picturesque harbour, able to take vessels with a draft of up to 3.5 metres no matter what the state of the tide. One cannot fail to be impressed by the oustanding beauty of the harbour as they enter East Loch Tarbert.

Tarbert is a very pretty village with many interesting attractions, many of these are listed in other sections of this web site, including festivals and other local events. You may wish to time a visit to coincide with one of these events.
