Tarbert Local Area

For those with an interest in Scottish History, there are several castles, such as in Tarbert itself and at Skipness a little further south, Carnassarie to the north or perhaps a trip to Inveraray and its magnificent castle – all with fascinating pasts.

There are other intriguing artefacts in the surrounding areas – many standing stones can be found at Kilmartin Glen  in mid Argyll as well as cup and ring marks – dating from the Bronze Age, they are believed to be a prehistoric art form. Near to Kilmartin (just south) is Dunadd fort, the royal power centre of Gaelic Kings with natural carvings in the stones at the top of the hill. Also worth a visit are the sculptured stones at Kilberry and Kilmory Chapel.

For the more energetic, there are numerous walks of varying difficulty. Many commence at the castle in Tarbert which is the beginning of the newly opened Kintyre Way which runs the length of the Kintyre Peninsula – a maximum of 103 miles. Additionally, there are numerous forestry and coastal walks – many also ideal for cycling too.

South of Tarbert are many beautiful sandy beaches, for example at West Point, Machrihanish and Southend. There are also beautiful beaches on the Island of Gigha, a great place to have a day trip from the Barfad Farmlands Self Catering Cottages.

Tarbert golf course has a 9 hole course with stunning moorland scenery and is quite challenging. Some 35 miles South lies the Machrihanish 18 holer in truly spectacular coastal surroundings. The opening hole requires a drive over the Atlantic Ocean and the course was redesigned in 1880 by Old Tom Morris himself. Also at Machrihanish is the newly completed Dunes Course and there is a 9 hole course in Lochgilphead too.
