Around Shore Holiday Cottage

Located in a secluded location right by the sea a few miles from Tarbert on Loch Fyne.

It’s hard to capture the splendour of Shore Cottage. It lies 50 feet from the sea facing Barmore Island, the only property in the bay. When the tide goes out, you can wander for hours scouring the exposed sandy bay and mussel beds for sea-side finds. Or you can take a quick hike round the Island where you’ll usually disturb a deer or two. From the summit of the island you can see north to Inverary and the hills beyond and south to Arran and the Clyde coast.

Tarbert is a natural spot for messing about on the water and once out of the calm of one of Scotland’s most photographed natural harbours, Loch Fyne almost feels like the ocean. With a long fishing pedigree, Tarbert still boasts great sea-food as well as a testing 9 hole golf course and pathways to the Kintyre Way.

A great base for touring, you can head south towards the Mull of Kintyre passing through historic settlements, sandy beaches and challenging golf courses, or north through the ancient Kilmartin glens to Oban, the gateway to the hebridean islands. If island bagging is your thing, within 30 minutes of Tarbert, you can be aboard ferries heading for Gigha, Islay, Jura or Arran.

Our family has been enjoying Shore Cottage and Tarbert for 40 years. The cottage was completely refurbished in 2008 and is now a relaxing, cosy and comfortable holiday home in a wonderfully idyllic location.
