Tarbert is a small fishing village situated on the west coast of Loch Fyne. A real yachtman’s paradise, the ‘safe harbour’ is ideally situated to base your vessel for some sheltered day sails further up Loch Fyne or down to Arran or to the Kyles of Bute and is a popular stopping off point for vessels heading out to the Western Isles through the Crinan Canal . The friendly fishing village offers a welcoming atmosphere and is a picturesque spot from which to enjoy all that the local area has to offer.
The village offers good food and drink in its many friendly hotels and restaurants, as well as a fine selection of retail outlets – galleries, a supermarket, a butcher, a fish merchant, a delicatessen, a larder, a post office, hardware stores, a yachting chandlery, hairdressers, a beautician, a physiotherapist, an osteopath, a masseuse and a pharmacy. There is also a health centre, an optician and a dentist.
Many of the local hotels and restaurants serve local seafood and other local produce, such as beef and venison. Around the harbour there are also smaller cafe’s and fast food outlets serving light snacks, both for sitting in and taking away.
