Argyll's Tarbert Holiday Park is on the Kintyre peninsula in the west of Scotland, between Loch Fyne and West Loch Tarbert.
Canoes can be hired from a watersports centre nearby; if you need a bit of guidance, you can take a kayaking or paddleboarding lesson or trip or ask a guide to keep you company alongside your canoe.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

The surrounding lochs are the main pull of this spectacular region, so get out onto the water via an instructor-led canoe trip straight from the site, or by paddleboard or kayak with the help of the watersports centre next door.
All sorts of other activities are accessible from Tarbert two miles away: there's fishing from here and along the loch shore; wildlife-watching cruises from the harbour, and teeing off at Tarbert Golf Club, a nine-hole course among lush green surrounds.
Also from the village, set your feet or bike wheels along the long-distance route of the Kintyre Way, which runs all the way along the Kintrye Peninsula from Tarbert in the north to Machrihanish in the south. The first stretch is the 11-mile hike from Tarbert to Claonaig, past hill paths and forest trails, Skipness village and Robert the Bruce's castle.
The megalithic site of the standing stones at Ballochroy are 12 miles away; off the peninsula, you could venture to the Scottish Beaver Trial project at Knapdale (15 miles); Achamore Gardens on the island of Gigha (15 miles), or to Islay and Jura, within 30 miles.
