Welcome to the
Castle Heritage Park and the Village
Tarbert Loch Fyne, Argyll
Tarbert Loch Fyne is one of Argyll's most attractive villages. It's an historic fishing community, with a perfect natural harbour dominated by the ruined structure of a medieval castle with royal connections.
Visit the village to enjoy the ever-busy fishing harbour and yachting centre, with shops, galleries, hotels, pubs and cafes, all in a conservation area surrounded by unique heritage and beautiful scenery.
Tarbert Castle is a scheduled monument of national importance because of the major role which Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland, played in its reinforcement and enlargement in c. 1325. The castle is held in Trust for the community, and volunteers have opened up the site, secured the ruins, and improved visitor access.
The Castle Heritage Park provides an excellent family picnic spot close to the village where photography is a popular activity, exploiting the magnificent views over the harbour and Loch Fyne beyond.
It's all open 24/7 - and free of charge.
Don’t miss our flock of Hebridean black sheep, which provide conservation grazing on the site - or our contribution to natural habitat in the Community Woodland, with a pond and sculptures to keep youngsters occupied.
