Set below the ruins of the 13th century castle, Tarbert provides a gateway to the Kintyre peninsula. In the hills above the village the woodland offers spectacular views over Loch Fyne across to the Cowal peninsula and the chance to see black grouse and hen harriers on open moor land.
There are a range of walks, taking you to viewpoints where you can look down on the yachts and fishing boats in the harbour or join the first leg of the Kintyre Way to walk high into the hills and over to the small village of Skipness.
How to get there:
Tarbert is part of Tarbert and Skipness. Tarbert is the nearest town or village.
Tarbert is at the head of the Kintyre Peninsula, and is reached by following the A83 from Glasgow through Inveraray and Lochgilphead or by ferry from Portavadie.
