General

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.

On land, the 100-mile Kintrye Way starts near the site's local village of Tarbert, two miles away; golf is within a couple of miles, and you can take day trips to the scenic (and whisky-producing) islands of Islay and Jura 30 miles away via the nearby ferry.

Tarbert Holiday Park has free wifi and a toilet block with showers and disabled facilities. Dogs are welcome.

Barbecues are allowed on site.

    Remote tranquility. Good facilities

    Disliked: 

    It was pointed out on arrival that the WiFi could be hit and miss. Yes it works intermittently which nowadays is very frustrating when considering that most people hook up to make bookings and the like. It's probably not the site at fault but poor infrastructure by the ISP.

Good but requires improvement05/09/2019

  • Birch camping pod (two man)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The site is well situated, close to Tarbert and with easy road access to all the touristic sites of interest in Kintyre and beyond. The site has a nice open aspect, is not overcrowded and the pod in which we stayed offered a reasonable view over West Loch Tarbert and the hills beyond. The site also has adequate bathroom and kitchen facilities, although I would imagine these would be crowded at busy times.

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately, although this is generally a good site the owners have neglected some basic amenities that made our stay less than pleasant. There has been no thought given to mitigating the quite bad midge problem in summer. The pod we stayed in contained not fly nets on the window or patio door, meaning that these needed to remain closed. However, the pods are well insulated and the heat generated by the small fridge made the pods unbearably hot.

    Another annoyance is that there appears to be a Forestry Commission site directly adjacent to the campsite and their vehicle use the common road directly by the pods and bathrooms/kitchen. They start driving on these at about 6.30am in noisy vans, meaning that you're likely to get woken.

    Also, little thought has been given to storage or hanging spaces. The pod we rented had no coat hooks or shelves and only one medium table. The same situation was present in the bathrooms, with only two hooks in the shower stalls (of which there are only two) and no seating nor shelves present to store items. If management would give thought to these issues and address them, this could be a very pleasant site to visit.

Excellent facilities and nice staff. Good place to go for outings.02/09/2019

  • Liked: 

    The quietness.
    The shared kitchen with a very complete and useful household goods.
    Everything was clean and well mantained.

    Disliked: 

    According to the description of the web we understood that the kitchen was for the privative use of any pod. Once there, we saw that is wasn't so; but instead, the shared facilities were perfect.

    Unmanned facility a lot of the time. Very basic pitches due to newness of site. No direct view of the Loch due to woodland the other side of the main road running which we were directly on.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

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.

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
