Colourful Store, Tarbert, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on the small town of Tarbert on Harris in the Outer Hebrides.

The Outer Hebrides are a chain of islands located off the West Coast of Scotland in the Atlantic Ocean.Here can be found Harris Tweed weavers, Gaelic speakers, seafood, prehistoric monuments, mountainous scenery, sandy beaches and many sheep.

Tarbert is a ferry port providing a regular crossing connection to Uig on the Isle of Skye. The name is of Gaelic origin and means ‘strip of land’ or isthmus.

Tarbert is a good base for touring Lewis and Harris. The town is home to hotels and other lodgings together with shops and a bank. A new whisky distillery is under construction.
