Tarbet  Dunbartonshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Tarbet like this:

Tarbet, a hamlet in Arrochar parish, Dumbartonshire, on the western shore of Loch Lomond, 1¾ mile E by N of Arrochar village at the head of Loch Long. It has a steamboat pier and a large hotel. All the Loch Lomond steamers call at it; and many tourists pass from it across the isthmus to Arrochar. It stands on the road from Inveraray to Dumbarton by way of Luss.—Ord. Sur., sh. 38, 1871.
