“ The Mountains of the  Island of Arran from a Kintyre beach”
Tarbert is situated right in the heart of some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland and Knap Guest House is in an excellent location for visitors to make it their base to explore this historic area. There are ferries from the heart of the village to the Cowal Peninsula and delightful Tighnabruich. You can also travel from nearby Kennacraig (we are a nearby bed and breakfast to Kennacraig) to the famous whisky producing islands of  Islay and Jura. Caledonian MacBrayne also sail from nearby Skipness to the Island of Arran known as “Scotland in miniature” and the ferry from Tayinloan to enchanting Gigha makes for an excellent day out.

The local area offers plenty for everyone to do such as forestry walks or perhaps you might want to do all or part of the Kintyre Way which starts in Tarbert. The walk is over one hundred miles long and meanders from the east to west coasts of Kintyre on its way south. There are also several golf courses. The local course is an enjoyable nine holer.

There are also offers many historic sites such as the magnificent castle at nearby Skipness or the many prehistoric standing stones in Kilmartin Glen, just a short journey to the north.
