Bay Tarbet Hotel

Visit hotel website
Situated within one of Scotland’s largest national parks, the Tarbet has had a rich history as a resting place for travellers for over 400 years. The present building dates back 250 years and was built in the Baronial style. The exterior has recently been redecorated and the hotel presents an impressive first impression even today. There are a total of 69 rooms arranged over two floors, some of which offer spectacular views. The surrounding scenery is second to none, as the hotel looks out over Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond from its location on the banks of the Loch itself. Admire the beautifully decorated restaurant where some tables overlook the loch and take advantage of the spacious entertainment lounge with bar. The Tarbet also has the benefit of a comfortable residents’ lounge with board games and books to help you relax and unwind. The perfect end to a great day’s sightseeing.

We have booked a Shearings holiday staying at the Tarbet Hotel with only one excursion included. Can anyone tell me if extra excursions are offered and what they are please?
We only stayed there going by car but an excellent day out on a fine day is walk to the station about 15 mins and take the scenic train ride to Fort William. Cost about £50 for two but a wonderful ride, There are buses that also stop near the hotel and if there is a suitable one to Oban you may be able to fit in a cruise to Mull and back, ferry is only £7 each. The cruise on the Loch is nearly double that but we enjoyed it.
