Visit Scotland on your camping, motorhome and caravan holidays, to drink in the awe-inspiring scenery – and perhaps a few local tipples, too.
If you're looking to head to the west coast, then West Loch Tarbert Holiday Park is a charming and picturesque retreat in the heart of Argyll and Bute. The location of the park makes it an ideal place for families to head on a break, especially those looking to get away from it all and enjoy a quiet and relaxing holiday surrounded by raw, unspoiled and beautiful landscape.
The park has a number of accommodation options, including pitches for those with motorhomes, touring caravans and tents. West Loch Tarbert Holiday Park also has some luxurious, four-star rated Scandinavian lodges that give views across the water itself, as well as a selection of static holiday homes for hire. These static holiday homes are fitted with the latest appliances and modern conveniences, ensuring guests a comfortable and relaxing stay.
Despite being found in a quiet region, there is much to do for guests willing to get out and about to explore their surroundings. This is helped by the fact that this campsite isn't far from the A83, so getting out and about is not difficult.
The nearest village to the park is Tarbert itself, which sits on Loch Fyne – it will only take you about five minutes to drive there. The village has a selection of local amenities ensuring guests can always stock up on groceries or enjoy eating and drinking out. Tarbert has a wonderful natural harbour that is definitely worth exploring – some think that this is best viewed from Robert the Bruce's 14th century castle above the town. From Tarbert you can take a ferry for the short trip across to Portavadie.
To the south, a scenic 50-minute drive along the coast takes guests to Campbeltown, a charming place to spend the day. This town sits alongside the Campbeltown Loch, on the Kintyre peninsula.
Guests wanting to take to the sea once more can take the ferry from close to the park across to Islay or Jura. Both islands have some wonderful landscapes to explore as well as friendly, welcoming communities and a selection of visitor attractions, including Scotch whisky distilleries. In fact, there are eight malt whisky distilleries on Islay.
Tarbert Golf Club, about a five-minute drive from this campsite, is open to the public throughout the year and is popular with tourists looking to enjoy a round. Those wanting to explore on foot or on two wheels away from the coast will find a combination of rolling terrain and woodland, perfect for gentle walks, cycling, mountain biking, or even just finding a spot to relax and enjoy a picnic and some wildlife or bird watching.
Just a 20-minute drive up the coast on the A83 is the lochside village of Ardrishaig, which is where the Crinan Canal starts. You might like to enjoy a meal at the Grey Gull Inn or the Allt-Na-Craig House.
Further afield, about an 80-minute drive from this campsite is the small resort town of Oban, a place definitely worth visiting. Perhaps you could stop there when you're going to or from West Loch Tarbert Holiday Park.
This campsite is in an idyllic location, great for your camping and caravan holidays in Scotland.
