Specialty Travel

tarbert

There’s plenty of activity any time of year near Britain’s historic harbours. Most are no longer used for large-scale fishing but retain their quaintness and interest for holidaymakers. Usually they offer great fish and seafood (Padstow in north Cornwall is a fine example). Others have a world-class artistic culture (like St Ives in south Cornwall) and some are known for wonderful fish and chips (like Whitby in north Yorkshire – which also boasts a museum commemorating James Cook, the explorer).

A firm favourite with many people is Tarbert on Loch Fyne (where the oysters come from) on the Scottish coast. It’s an attractive village with a restored Victorian steamer pier and surrounded by heather-covered hills.
