Tarbert Castle is a scheduled monument of national importance because of the major roll which Robert the Bruce King of Scotland played in its reinforcement and enlargement in C 1325.
The castle is now owned by Tarbert and Skipness Community Trust who with their volunteer organisation Tarbert Conservation Initiative have opened up the site, secured the ruins and improved visitor access.
The castle location provides an excellent family picnic spot close to the village and there are lovely walks further up the hillside, including the first section of the Kintyre Way. Remember to bring your camera as the views from the castle over Tarbert harbour and Loch Fyne are magnificent and don’t miss the resident lawnmowers – a flock of Hebridean black sheep who provide conservation grazing on the site.
