Ground Floor Retail Unit in Attractive Harbour Front Location 106 sq.m. (1,140 sq.ft)


Tarbert is a picturesque village located on Loch Fyne which is known as the gateway to the beautiful peninsula of Kintyre in the south west of Argyll. Kintyre is a 40 mile long narrow peninsula containing beautiful coastline, forestry, hills and farmland. Set between rugged landscape and an attractive natural harbour, the village has a wide range of amenities including a supermarket, medical centre, pubs, restaurants, independent shopping and schooling. The harbour is home to a working fishing fleet and the area sees a variety of festivals and events throughout the year, the most famous being the Scottish Sailing Series as well as the seafood festival. Tarbert serves as a travel hub for the region and the village is popular with overnight visitors, being the last stop before the ferry service to the islands of Islay (and Jura), Gigha and Arran and also Portavadie. The ferry to Ardrossan (seasonal) runs from Campbeltown to the south and there are many other Inner Hebrides routes provided from Oban which is an hour and a half to the North. The surrounding area is popular for outdoor pursuits including walking, cycling, sailing, fishing, bird watching, shooting and diving. There are many golf courses in the area including the championship course at Marchrihanish located at the southern tip of the Mull of Kintyre.
