"A Natural Harbour" West Tarbert Things to Do Tip by scottishvisitor

West Tarbert Things to Do: 6 reviews and 24 photos

The West Loch cuts into the land providing Tarbert with a natural harbour. Its fortunes in fishing have declined over the centuries but it is still a working harbour with boats sailing down Loch Fyne and out into the open sea. Most fishing boats only sail at weekends, but some put to sea every day landing their 'catch' here in the early morning. This is when the harbour comes alive with seagulls chasing after the boats as they head into port. We did see some fishing boats - they were greatly outnumbered by the graceful yachts. Yes pleasure craft has overtaken fishing but I still like to watch as the boats go by.
