Tarbert is a picturesque West of Scotland fishing harbour situated on the sheltered eastern side of the Kintyre peninsula about 14 miles to the south of Lochgilphead and about 36 miles to the north of Campbeltown.

The house is situated on Pier Road and as the name suggests is close to the pier and associated waterscape views over the mouth of Tarbert Harbour entrance and beyond to the lower reaches of Loch Fyne. The harbour entrance is always lively with the coming and going of commercial and pleasure boating craft.

Tarbert has a number of friendly harbour pubs and restaurants. It is renowned for hosting the annual Scottish Series Yachting Event, its seafood and folk festivals. Tarbert has primary and secondary schooling as well as a range of specialist shops and a small supermarket which combine to provide for most daily needs and requirements.

From Tarbert there is a ferry link to Portavadie, which gives access to an alternative route to Glasgow via Dunoon and Gourock.

11 miles away to the south is the picturesque little ferry port of Claonaig, by Skipness, which connects Lochranza on the island of Arran to the Kintyre peninsula, whilst the Kennacraig ferry is 6 miles south (just off the A83) and connects the Kintyre mainland with Islay, Jura and Colonsay.

The A83 leads to Lochgilphead and Campbeltown (14 and 36 respectively) both offering fuller shopping and professional services. The latter is the main shopping town for the peninsula and provides a further range of facilities including supermarkets, garages, the award winning 'Aqualibrium' leisure centre and library, a hospital and a cinema. The hospital has an air-ambulance service to the Southern General hospital in Glasgow for emergencies.

Campbeltown holds an annual regatta, a week-long music festival and the Mull of Kintyre half marathon.

For sporting/outdoor enthusiasts, the links course of Machrihanish is of international acclaim and attracts many visitors. A new 18-hole golf course known as the Machrihanish Dunes Golf Club has also recently opened. Tarbert has a challenging 18-hole course and there are 9-hole courses in Carradale and on the island of Gigha. The beach of Machrihanish Bay is well known for windsurfing and surf canoeing.

Some of the most scenic sailing in the world is available with access to either Loch Fyne at Tarbert or the west coast and the Inner Hebrides from West Loch Tarbert. The Crinan Canal also connects Loch Fyne at Ardrishaig with Loch Crinan and on to Mull and the Hebrides. Tarbert has its own sheltered marina and moorings and across the Fyne at Portavadie is a recently opened marina, both have associated marina and chandlery services.

Productive sea fishing from shore and boat is available locally and there are trout and salmon opportunities by permit in surrounding rivers and hill lochs.

The countryside is a delight in which to walk or cycle and there is no shortage of scenic routes and places of archaeological and historical interest to visit.

The islands of Davaar and Gigha are nearby and are steeped in history, with stunning scenery and landscapes which attract an abundance of wildlife.
A long distance footpath called the Kintyre Way was completed in 2006 and stretches from Tarbert at the north end of the peninsula, to Southend in the south and criss-crosses the peninsula, connecting communities and landscape, people and produce. The Kintyre Way is 89 miles long in total and with 4 to 7 days worth of walking. There is serious hiking and gentle rambles

From Glasgow take the A82 and A83 to reach the west coast town/port of Tarbert. On arrival in Tarbert proceed to the centre of the village with the harbour on the left and the A83 bearing right. At this point turn left and proceed along the front passing the fishing boat catch landing quay, the boatyard and the Tarbert to Portavadie ferry slip. Continue along Pier Road to find Fasgadh on the right hand side."
