The Tarbet Hotel
Tarbet ( ) is a small village in Argyll and Bute, Scotlandmarker.

Traditionally on the northern fringes of the historic County of Dunbartonmarker, it is on the banks of Loch Lomondmarker, and has a pier. It stands on an isthmus where Loch Longmarker and Loch Lomondmarker come close. The village of Arrocharmarker stands at the head of Loch Longmarker, at the other side of the isthmus. Arrochar and Tarbet railway stationmarker, on the West Highland Line, stands between them.

Its name comes from the Scottish Gaelic word for isthmus, although Tarbert is the more common anglicization, and Tarbatmarker also exists.

The area around Arrochar and Tarbet has become the scene of "squirrel wars". The red squirrel is resisting the offensive by the grey squirrel taking place across Great Britainmarker, since there is a type of woodland they find more favourable than most.
