Things to do
 
 
Bruce’s Castle
The earliest stone structure on this site dates from the 13th century, possibly earlier.

The fortification guarded the anchorage below in the bay, and controlled the land link between Tarbert’s East and West Lochs.

In 1292, it was certainly a Royal Castle, being among those granted to John Balliol by Edward I of England. In 1325, Robert the Bruce enlarged and fortified the Castle, with the extensive curtain wall and drum towers enclosing almost two acres.

Surviving building accounts record, among other structures, a hall, a chapel, houses, workshops, a brewhouse and, outside the wall, a mill and mill lade.

The Tarbert Castle accounts which were prepared for Robert the Bruce are some of the oldest documents in the Exchequer Rolls of Scotland.

This nine hole course, established on this site in 1924, is attractively situated on the shores of West Loch, Tarbert. It is the ideal spot to break up your journey to Kintyre, Islay or Arran.
