About Us

Although Tarbert has few, if any, facilities specifically for visiting yachts, it is nonetheless a useful pit stop for fuel, water and provisions, and has a bank, two grocery stores, post office, tourist information centre, hairdressers, general store, and filling station. The alternative is to go to nearby north harbour Scalpay, where provisions, fuel and water are also available, with the option of visiting Tarbert by bus or taxi. There are two hotels in Tarbert: Harris Hotel and the adjacent Harris Inn provide restaurant and bar meals, as does the Pierhouse Restaurant, part of the Hotel Hebrides by the ferry terminal, from where the ferry crosses to Uig on Skye.
