Tarbert Castle

 Tarbert Castle

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.

I found an excellent PDF file on the Knapdale People Website giving more details on the history of the castle and the surrounding area.

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!
