General

  • Peaceful setting on the Kintyre peninsula
  • Canoe hire, lessons and guides available nearby
  • Close to ferry ports for Islay, Gigha and Arran

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 beaut (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.

    Disappointed that the Holiday Park was still being built and needed to access toilet/shower unit by using mhome to go up the inclines.My husband tripped in the dark and fell into dangerous ditch hurting his face and leg. Also no mobile or tv signal or wi fi after being given a code.

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
