Tarbet, which is on the A82 about 2/3 of the way north on the western shores of Loch Lomond, is two miles from Arrochar, and is an ideal centre from which to tour Argyll, the Trossachs and Kintyre.
The majestic peaks of Ben Lomond, The Cobbler, Ben Vane, and Ben Ime which form the Arrochar Alps, dominate the surrounding area.
The village of Tarbet is small but has an Hotel with restaurants, the Slanj Restaurant, a small Post Office and a Tearoom.
Arrochar on the A83, is a larger village with more shops, restaurants and hotels.
Cruise Loch Lomond operates regular ferry services from the pier at Tarbet, to Inversnaid and Rowardennan for access to The West Highland Way or to climb Ben Lomond. There are cycles for hire at the pier.
There is an Information Centre/shop in the village of Tarbet.
Glencoe, Oban, Fort William, Dunoon, Inveraray, Stirling, Edinburgh and Glasgow are all within a few hours easy drive of Tarbet and it also benefits from having a Railway Station a few minutes walk from the house with stations on the scenic West Highland Line to FortWilliam, Mallaig, Oban and Glasgow if you want to have a break from driving!
