Tarbert is Scotland at its simplistic best; jagged rock formations adorn the coastline and authentic architecture decorates the village centre – all with the brisk breeze of the infamous Scottish air dominating the atmosphere. With such stunning landscape and tempting walking trails, the most popular and satisfying pastime is to embark on a hike across the verdant, imposing mountainside. Do so in the summer for the perfect opportunity to rejoice in the tranquillity and snap a few photos for your Instagram.
Away from the towering mountains and quaint houses, the most picturesque part of the village is the colourful harbour – affording a pleasant area to sit and relax at a local café whilst watching the incoming ships and small yachts. A few restaurants grace the docks, offering seafood fresh from the water as the day’s speciality.
Tarbert is a small village on the west coast of Scotland, formed around the East Loch Tarbert and bordering Loch Fyne. The only ferry route departing the port is to Lochmaddy on the Outer Hebrides, with crossings typically lasting around 1 hour 50 minutes.
