Argyll and the Isles Sights

Tarbert

Updated 10/08/2013

Fodor's Review

A name that appears throughout the Highlands, Tarbert is the Gaelic word for "place of portage," and a glance at the map tells you why it was given to this little town with a workaday waterfront: Tarbert sits on the narrow neck of land between East and West Loch Tarbert, where long ago boats were actually carried across the land to avoid looping all the way around the peninsula. The town's visitor center is on Harbour Street.
