However you choose to visit Tarbert, you are sure to enjoy the journey, by road from Glasgow you travel along the A82 to Loch Long then the A83 to Tarbert.
By car it is a beautiful drive. See the map below for details.
There are ferries from various locations, if you fancy doing some island hopping, take a look at the Caledonian MacBrayne Website for further details and to plan your journey.
As you come into Tarbert, be it by land or sea, you are sure to spot the castle.
The climb to the top of the hill may be tiring for some but it is well worth the effort.
The views from the top are spectacular so if the weather is nice, take a cool drink and a picnic and make some time to really savour the view!
The grass around the castle is kept trim thanks to the Hebridean black sheep that live up there.
Tarbert Castle is looked after by The Tarbert Castle Trust, more information can be found on their website.
You can also follow the trust on their facebook page giving updates on news and developments, see below for a preview and give them a “like”
There are some fantastic pictures of the castle on the page taken by local and tourists, check out the community woodland too!
