Tarbert on Loch Fyne is an attractive village which for many visitors acts as the gateway to the beautiful peninsula of Kintyre.
Tabert’s harbour front is very pretty, and is best appreciated from Robert the Bruce’s 14th century castle above the town. Only the ivy-strewn ruins of the keep remain, though the view from the overgrown rubble makes the stroll up here worthwhile. There are steps up to the castle and a red waymarked path from the harbour front. Longer walks are also marked out, including a hike all the way over to Skipness. The shortest stroll of all is to the far end of Pier Road, where there is a tiny, but very lovely shell beach.
The village is also an important travel hub for the region, providing access to no fewer than four ferry terminals.
