About The Moorings
Thanks! You will receive an email as soon as the property has answered your question.
The Moorings Bed and Breakfast is a traditional stone-built fisherman's cottage situated within the quiet fishing village of Tarbert, Lochfyne, Argyll. The cottage has stunning views out across the harbour entrance and across Lochfyne and an idyllic garden where you can relax. Only a 2 minute walk to all local amenities, the village of Tarbert is host to several restaurants and pubs where fresh local seafood can be experienced. Situated at the rear of The Moorings Bed and Breakfast on the hill is the ruins of Tarbert Castle, which dates back to the 13th century and is known to have royal connections such as Robert the Bruce in 1325 and in 1494 James IV summoned Parliament to meet in Tarbert. All rooms within the bed and breakfast are equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, flat screen tv's with freeview. There is a strict No Smoking policy throughout the house. Please note The Moorings is a traditional stone-built fishermans cottage and as such has a campsile style interior (sloping ceilings)
I have been running the Moorings B&B for going on 40 years and go above and beyond for my guests. I take pride in welcoming my guests into my home and making it their home from home for their stay. After a comfortable nights sleep you can relax in the lounge and enjoy a full Scottish breakfast if desired in front of the new log fire, whilst enjoying views of Loch Fyne. Guests have been known to enjoy wandering the garden and discovering some of the more unusual yet delightful ornaments and sculptures on display in the garden. With lots of wildlife and a family of Swallows that return every year to nest in the porch it can be an ornithologists delight. Spring can be magical at the Moorings. I live within the Moorings with my 3 bearded collies who are rather lively but very friendly. The dogs are allowed into my private area however are not permitted up the stairs to the guest accommodation. You may however encounter them in the garden so if you are uncomfortable with dogs perhaps this is not the place for you. I have lived locally all my life and have good local knowledge so dont be afraid to ask questions as I will be more than happy to help if I can.
