Tarbert is a busy village with some superb art galleries, cafés and bars. The harbour is a safe haven for the local fishing boats and a very popular destination for yachts big and small. During May the Scottish Yacht Series are staged in Loch Fyne and the Seafood Festival in July is also very popular. Some of the walks in and around the village are a delight and a short climb to the ivy-strewn ruins of Robert the Bruce’s 14th century castle is definitely worth it for the views!
Tarbert is known as the gateway to the Kintyre Peninsula with its stunning white sandy beaches, and there is easy access to no fewer than four ferry terminals. From the village you can sail to Portavadie and the Cowal Peninsula, or head south to Claonaig for the ferry to Arran where you can climb Goatfell. Islay, famous for its whisky, can be reached by ferries leaving Kennacraig, as can Jura, and the magical island of Gigha is a short ferry crossing from Tayinloan. Kilmartin is rich in archaeology with the remains of Neolithic and early Bronze Age monuments, burial cairns and standing stones. Inveraray Jail, Kilmory Castle and a choice of beautiful gardens are also well worth a visit. Lochgilphead and Oban, the seafood capital, are a short drive north. Fishing can also be found nearby. Shop 110 yards, pub and restaurant 180 yards.
