The Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park region
Tarbet lies at the intersection of the A82 which is the main access road north to the west highlands and the A83 leading to Argyll and Bute peninsula.
The highland fault line crosses Loch Lomond to the south of Tarbet which can be regarded as the western gateway to the highlands.
Loch Lomond which was formed during the last ice age is the largest freshwater loch in Scotland and at Tarbet is more than 700 feet deep.
The Arrochar Alps are regarded as some of the most popular climbing in Scotland and Ben Arthur (the Cobbler) is particularly renowned for its distinctive summit.
The immediate area lies within the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.
The area is popular with walkers for both hill and forest walks and watersports and fishing are catered for on the loch itself. In addition there are a number of golf courses in the vicinity and numerous mountain peaks for more serious climbers.
Loch Fyne, a sea loch lies within half an hour's drive and at Inverary you can visit the castle which is the family home of the Campbells of Argyll.
