Tarbert Loch Fyne) is a small village sitting on the west coast of Loch Lomond a short distance from
Arrochar. Like Arrochar this is a popular stop on the West Highland Railway for walkers, cyclists and climbers alike. The views from this little village are stunning and is probably one of the reasons why there is a very large hotel, The Tarbet Hotel, sitting on the main street.
The road north splits at Tarbet, one branch leading west
through Arrochar to the
Argyll Coast out of the National Park and into the equally beautiful county of Argyll, the other leading north up Loch Lomond.
Day trippers can relax down near the pier in a large picnic area where there is a visitor centre and public toilets.
The railway station serves both Arrochar and Tarbet, and is on the Glasgow Oban or Fort William routes. The village is also on the main bus routes from Glasgow to Oban or Fort William. This small hamlet also has Loch cruises run by Cruise Loch Lomond Ltd with frequent cruises leaving from Tarbet pier daily.
