Tarbert is situated on the north tip of the Kintyre peninsula, and provides an ideal and beautiful stopping off point for sailors working their way up to the Crinan Canal. The canal provides a welcome short cut to those wishing to sail further up the west coast without having to go round the Mull of Kintyre.
There are two ferry sailings from Tarbert, one taking travellers to Lochranza on Arran and the other heading to Portavadie on the Cowal peninsula.
For those who have a car, Tarbert is also a good base for travelling on to visit the stunning islands of Gigha, Islay and Jura, or to explore the remainder of Kintyre peninsula, made famous in Paul McCartney’s song ‘Mull of Kintyre’.
