Dear visitor, On behalf of the Trustees and staff may I wish you a warm welcome to Tarbert, especially during our centenary year. A special centenary section has been included in this yearbook, which we hope you will find both interesting and informative. To mark the occasion we have also published a limited edition calendar running from 1st April 2013 – 31st March 2014 (available to purchase from the Harbour Office). The permanent repairs to the damaged pontoons sustained in the gales during January 2012 have now been carried out. The additional pontoons provided in early 2012, have been well received and have allowed the Harbour to provide much needed extra berthing and additional berthing for boats up to 14m. The Harbour Authority will continue to provide improvements to the shore side facilities to keep abreast of the needs of the visiting yachts, berth holders, local residents and all harbour stakeholders. It is hoped that grant funding can be secured to upgrade the toilet and shower facilities and to provide a new harbour office. Additions to the harbour amenity site in the form of an artificial grass surface are also planned. We hope you find this yearbook helpful and interesting during your visit and we wish you a very successful and enjoyable 2013 yachting season. Yours sincerely Alan Macdonald Chairman, Board of Trustees If you would like to receive our quarterly newsletter please leave your name and address or e-mail at the Harbour Office or apply on line at our website www.tarbertharbour.co.uk.

Tarbert (Loch Fyne) Harbour Authority 1913 – 2013: 100 years of history The small inlet of Loch Fyne, known as East Loch Tarbert, has been used as a place of shelter, both for fishermen and traders, for over a thousand years.

revised in 2007 when the ‘Tarbert (Loch Fyne) Harbour Revision Order 2007’ was enacted. The Trustees continue to be unremunerated, with all surpluses returned for the maintenance and improvement of the harbour.

In 1708 its importance was recognised by an Act of Parliament which empowered the local landowner, together with the three Justices of the Peace nearest to Tarbert and the Sheriff principal of the Shire, “to make and keep in good repair a harbour or quay at East Tarbert along with such wharves and buildings as may be thought necessary for the anchoring of all ships and boats and for the landing and laying any fish or merchandises”. Under the provisions of this Act the landowner was granted the right to charge dues to “all persons and masters of vessels using the harbour and its facilities”. Such revenues thus raised were to be applied to the “making, amending and maintaining the said harbour and quay of East Tarbert”.

The Founding of Tarbert (Loch Fyne) Harbour Authority The Harbour Act of 1708 required revision to take into account the changes of the previous 200 years. A petition to parliament by the then landowner, a trader, merchant, fisherman and Glasgow ship owner – resulted in the Tarbert (Loch Fyne) Harbour Order 1912 and the establishment of Tarbert (Loch Fyne) Harbour Authority. The order specified that maintenance and regulation of Tarbert Harbour be vested with a body of trustees, not to exceed seven in number and although carrying considerable responsibility these positions were unremunerated. Provision was made for elections to be held on the second Tuesday of March every third year. The first sitting of the Board of Trustees was held on April 1st 1913. This Order was

Fishing Tarbert was already a well established herring port by 1913. Records from 1920 show that WWI had little effect on herring fishing in Tarbert and in 1921 there were around 40 pairs of skiffs engaged in herring fishing, which proved very successful, landing shots of up to 300 baskets. Indeed, the fishing industry became so successful that during the late 1920s and early 1930s the catches began to be cured in Tarbert itself. The ring-net method of fishing for herring (or circle netting as it was previously referred to) first began in the waters of lower Loch Fyne and during the 1940s, 50s and 60s the large herring landings were a key factor in driving the periodic improvements to Tarbert’s fish quay.

7


Alas, during the 1970s herring became scarce, a ban on herring fishing was eventually imposed and ring-net fishing became a thing of the past. Today there are only a very small amount of herring caught anywhere in the Firth of Clyde. The staple catch for local fishermen now are prawns and clams while dive boats fish for razor shells, clams and otter clam shells (a Chinese delicacy). The creel boats fish for prawns, crabs and lobsters. Despite the decline in the fortunes of the fishing industry Tarbert is still the base for a fishing fleet of around 20 vessels, carrying on the tradition of centuries and continuing to play a key role in the local economy.

Yachting In the early 1900s, before the advent of pontoons, yacht races such as the Clyde Corinthian Yacht Club’s Tarbert Race were already taking place – the tradition of weekend visiting yachts was already well established by the time the Tarbert Harbour Authority was formed. Over the years these visiting weekend yachts grew in number – in the summer the sight of the harbour crammed full of these visiting yachts was a regular spectacle. Some vessels found themselves too large to anchor safely in the harbour and as such they anchored themselves in the deeper waters between the east pier and the ferry slip. Tarbert became the venue for the Tomatin Trophy in 1975, a major yachting event, which has since evolved into the Scottish Series, which sees Tarbert play host to as many as 200 yachts of varying classifications for what is now the second biggest yachting event in the UK, taking place this year between the 24th & 27th of May. As the interest in yachting grew so did the demand for more marine leisure facilities. Swinging moorings were becoming less and less popular and the first pontoon was placed in the harbour in 1980, followed by car parking facilities and, later, a toilet/shower block.

8

In 2009 the main pontoon was expanded to include two legs of finger pontoons which proved very popular with the yachtsmen, leading to a further expansion, thanks to a grant from the Scottish Government, which saw an additional 40 berths created in 2012. Today the Harbour boasts 160 finger berths and 600 metres of pontoon.

Boat building Dickie and Sons was founded in 1885 by Archibald Dickie, an apprenticed blacksmith in a Fairlie boatyard. Dickie’s initially focussed on building Loch Fyne skiffs. During WWI, Dickie’s built ‘small craft for the navy’. Peter Dickie, one of Archibald’s sons, took over the management of the boatyard from his father, managing it until 1923. At the time of Archibald Dickie’s death in 1928, one of his other sons, Tom, was the boatyard manager and around 30 men were employed in the main boatyard, building sailing and motor boats up to 100 feet. During WWII the boatyard built and maintained the Admiralty’s MFVs, MGBs and MTBs. Fifteen such vessels were launched from Dickie’s boatyard during the conflict, the last major contribution of the Dickie family to boat building in Tarbert before their ownership of the yard came to an end as the decade drew to a close.


From 1947 the yard changed hands many times and had many uses before being purchased by the Harbour Authority in 2009 after having fallen in to a state of disrepair. In 2010 the last remnants of the boatyard were demolished and a walkway was constructed, to link the pontoons with the village, as well as an amenity area which boasts barbecues, a boules court, an outdoor gym, seating, shade sails and a table tennis table.

to welcome the last remaining steamship Waverley on her regular calls throughout the summer months, as well as other larger vessels.

Ferry links In 1994 a link between Tarbert and the Cowal Peninsula was re-established, which saw the Portavadie ferry come into existence. Such has been the success of this venture that a new, larger hybrid ferry will come into service later this year to cover the Tarbert to Portavadie route, at a construction cost of over ÂŁ1million.

Looking to the future

rke rs

Since the turn of the century many improvements have taken place and the Harbour Board’s policy of continuing to improve the facilities for all users of the Harbour, both visitors and locals, has continued with several large projects taking place and additional and improved shoreside facilities planned for the near future.

Shipping

Adhering firmly to the principles laid out 100 years ago – the Harbour Board remain committed to ensuring that the Harbour continues to evolve, allowing for the growth of the existing business, for the benefit of future generations to come.

East Pier With the advent of steam passenger ships a wooden pier was created at the eastern end of the Harbour in 1870 to accommodate these large vessels. The most famous ship to use the pier was the Columba, which followed the route Queen Victoria made famous on her first visit to Scotland in 1847. From 1878 until she was decommissioned in 1936 the Columba brought a new elegance and comfort to Scottish maritime travel. In 2010 the east pier was the site of much needed restoration work, ensuring that the pier will continue to function for at least twenty more years, thus being able 9

Approaching Tarbert by sea East Loch Tarbert lies on the western side of Loch Fyne, which is situated to the north of the Isle of Arran. The entrance to East Loch Tarbert is both wide and clear. In the closer approaches Madadh Maol, a drying reef extending northwards from the southern shore of the loch, needs to be left well off on the port side. Its extremity is marked by a red light column (FL.R.2.5s), vessels should not pass close to the light structure, there is plenty of deep water to the north of it. Starting from a point around 100m north of the Madadh Maol light beacon a south westerly course goes through the main channel south of the Eilean a ‘Choic (Cock Island). This channel is less than 100m wide. Reefs projecting from the south of Cock Island are marked by a green light post (Q.G), which should be kept to starboard. Once past Cock Island the new pontoons will be visible. Make for these but leave the green buoy (VQ.G) to starboard. An alternative route to the north of Cock Island and the drying reefs and rocks of Sgeir Bhuidhe will be seen on the charts provided for those intrepid enough to try it.

Approaching Tarbert by land From Glasgow west follow the M8 through the centre of Glasgow and head towards Loch Lomond, taking the Erskine Bridge turn off before you get to Greenock.  Cross the bridge and follow the A82 towards Crianlarich.  Stay on the A82 and pick up the A83 travelling along the banks of Loch Lomond, signposted Inveraray and Campbeltown, continue along this road through Inveraray, Lochgilphead, Ardrishaig and finally to Tarbert (Loch Fyne).

Out and about in the local area Tarbert is a small fishing village situated on the west coast of Loch Fyne. A real yachtman’s paradise, the ‘safe harbour’ is ideally situated to base your vessel for some sheltered day sails further up Loch Fyne, down to Arran or to the Kyles of Bute and is a popular stopping off point for vessels heading out to the Western Isles through the Crinan Canal. The friendly fishing village offers a welcoming atmosphere and is a picturesque spot from which to enjoy all that the local area has to offer. The village offers good food and drink in its many friendly hotels and restaurants, as well as a fine selection of retail outlets – galleries, a supermarket, butcher, fish merchant, delicatessen, larder, post office, hardware stores, yachting chandlery, hairdressers, beautician, physiotherapist, osteopath, masseuse and a pharmacy.  There is also a health centre, an optician and a dentist. Many of the hotels and restaurants serve local seafood and other local produce, such as beef and venison. Around the harbour there are also smaller cafés and fast food outlets serving light snacks, both for sitting in and taking away.

14

The walkway linking the pontoons to the town centre is extremely popular with both locals and visitors alike, allowing pedestrians to move safely into the village and then on to other parts of the local area. The harbour amenity area adjacent to the walkway continues to evolve – shade sails, an outdoor gym, barbecues, a table tennis table and a boules playing area have recently been added. An artificial grass area and a new marquee are planned for 2013. The fish quay at the opposite side of the Harbour from the pontoons is where Tarbert’s fishing fleet berths overnight and is well worth a look. High quality fresh fish and shellfish are landed daily. Most of what isn’t used by the local restaurants is destined for markets in Spain and France. Overlooking the village, on the southern shore of the bay, are the remains of Tarbert Castle, a monument of national importance due to the major role Robert the Bruce played in its reinforcement and enlargement c. 1325. The castle site is now fully accessible to visitors, offering new historical information and interpretation panels as well as stunning views across the harbour and out to Loch Fyne. A superb site for photography, the castle is an enjoyable


Castles & culture visit, with picnic areas for the family. In the evening the floodlit castle is both a cheerful and iconic feature of the village.

Tarbert Castle, Carnasserie Castle ruins, Inveraray Castle, Skipness Castle, Kilmartin Glen

Adjacent to the castle are Forestry Commission walks, known as Corranbuie walks, with viewpoints looking down to Bute and the Heads of Ayr, the Cowal Hills, Mid Argyll and on to Ben Cruachan. There are many short walks, with the white shore on the north side of the harbour being a particularly popular destination, accessed through a forest trail, leading to a bird hide, then on to the shore itself. Another popular route takes the walker around the harbour, past the fish quay and on to the slipway for the Tarbert to Portavadie ferry, while a little further on is the shell beach, a beach composed entirely of scallop shells.

The Cowal Peninsula, Island of Arran, Island of Gigha, Island of Islay, Colonsay

The more energetic walker can take the bus to Skipness and return over the hills via the initial section of the Kintyre Way (or vice versa). Pamphlets are available from the harbour office or the local tourist office. Tarbert also offers a well maintained nine hole golf course, charter boats for diving, sea fishing from the East Pier and rocks, quiet bays and a number of picnic areas. Information boards can be found around the harbour, detailing other interesting walks, the history of the village, its fishing industry, the white shore, harbour bird life and useful local information.

Out and about on land For those visitors wishing to head further afield than Tarbert itself there are good bus links and ferry services within easy reach. Ferries to Arran, the Cowal Peninsula, Gigha and Islay can all be accessed locally, with timetables available from the harbour or tourist offices. The Crinan Canal, one of the country’s most picturesque waterways, is also well worth a visit. The canal is steeped in history and is a designated wildlife reserve as well as boasting miles of forest walks and cycle paths. Beginning at Ardrishaig, 11 miles to the north, the canal meanders on to Crinan, at the western edge of Argyll. Bicycles are available to hire and, at just 9 miles in length, the canal is a comfortable cycle for all the family. Campbeltown, the largest settlement in Kintyre, popularly known as ‘the Wee Toon’, is located around 40 miles south of Tarbert and is home to the oldest operating cinema in the country. Near Campbeltown, in the small village of Machrihanish, two championship golf courses can be found – regularly hailed as two of the best in Scotland – and as such this is a must destination for any visiting golfer. A little further afield, this time to the north, is the Royal Burgh of Inveraray. Sitting on the northern shores of Loch Fyne, the town boasts a number of interesting shops, notable among which are a traditional pharmacy and Loch Fyne Whiskies. Inveraray Jail, where life in a 19th century prison is portrayed, is a popular tourist attraction, as is Inveraray Castle, the seat of the Duke of Argyll, Chief of the Clan Campbell. For further information on the Mid Argyll region go to www.heartofargyll.com For further information on the Kintyre region go to www.explorekintyre.co.uk

16


Out and about by sea For those visitors wishing to stay with their boats there are just as many interesting places which are easily accessible from Tarbert.

Day sails The Oystercatcher, Otter Ferry, located on the eastern shore of Loch Fyne, is one such place of interest. Located just north of the Otter Spit, one can enjoy a leisurely drink, lunch or dinner at this excellent pub/restaurant on the beach. There is access to a pontoon by tender or small boat at all states of tide. Lochgair, just a few miles to the north, offers both a sheltered anchorage and a fine hotel – another ideal stopping off point. Situated at the northern tip of Arran is Lochranza, a site which includes visitor moorings, a landing stage, tearooms, hotel, golf club, whisky distillery and Lochranza Castle. Opposite Tarbert, on the eastern side of the loch, is Portavadie, a relatively new marina, opened in 2009. The facility boasts a fully equipped marina and a bar/ restaurant.

Overnight sails Locations such as Kames, Tighnabruaich, Carradale, Brodick, Lamlash, Whiting Bay, the Kyles of Bute, Loch Riddon, Colintraive, Rothesay, Largs, Millport, the upper reaches of Loch Fyne itself, the Firth of Clyde and Campbeltown.

17


Nature in the local area

Tarbert is an excellent site to use as a base for wildlife watching. Situated on the east shore of Loch Fyne it provides the naturalist, both amateur and professional, with a safe, sheltered spot that is used by a variety of marine life, mammals and birds, in both fair and not so fair weather. Within a mile of the village it is possible to see all five of Scottish Natural Hertitage’s ‘Big Five’ – the red deer, red squirrel, harbour seal, golden eagle and the otter.

Marine life

Mussels, crabs and sea urchins are also prevalent in the harbour, evidenced by the large number of shells and crab remains to be found on the pontoons and harbour wall each morning.

Mammals During the summer months pods of dolphins can be seen from the mouth of the harbour. Although infrequent they can be very entertaining and are a unique and welcome sight.

Many species of fish can be seen in and around the harbour area, particularly at high water. Mackerel are present throughout the year, with the numbers being particularly high in the summer months.

Porpoises are a more frequent sight and are also more likely to actually enter the harbour area and can be seen often, particularly when they are on the hunt for mackerel!

Shoals of large mullet enter the harbour during the summer and travel around the shallow waters. They are easily visible from the new walkway or the pontoons outside the harbour office.

A resident pair of otters are frequent visitors to the pontoon area and are quite used to being observed - they play and forage happily in sight of watching visitors.

Of particular interest are the basking sharks, which visit Loch Fyne in summer. Numbers of basking shark are on the rise after many years of decline and it is hoped that this rise will continue and many more will be visible along the coastline in the near future. 18

Birds Tarbert is also well known for its birdlife. A pair of mute swans have been known to hatch as many as nine cygnets in their nest on Eilan a’Choic (Cock Island). Most years, however, they confine themselves to five or six. The


swans are most frequently seen at the small slipway area near the Co-Op corner of the village as it is a favourite spot for them to take a drink of fresh water. During the winter months small flocks of little grebe can occasionally be seen, although they are very shy, small birds and tend to stay under the water for quite some time. Oyster catchers, redshank and eider are also commonly seen in the harbour area. Of particular interest is the black guillemot, locally known as ‘dookers’, giving the locals their nickname, historically due to a soup being made from these birds in the winter, a local delicacy which is no longer eaten.

Away from the Harbour

There is also a sizeable population of very rare mining wasps to be found on the castle pathway. To spot these the visitor should look for little 1cm mounds on the path from around May onwards. A short drive to the north, in the Knapdale forest, is the site of the first controlled reintroduction of the beaver to Scotland. The Scottish Beaver Trial introduced 12 beavers in 2009 and they have already made a major impact on the local habitat. Guided walks run throughout the summer and it is well worth booking a place. If you include the beavers, Argyll actually boasts the ‘Big Six’! For more information visit www.scottishbeavers.org.uk For more information on the ‘Big Five’ visit www.snh.gov.uk

The hills all around Tarbert are populated by families of roe, red and sika deer, and hybrids thereof, which can easily be seen during morning and evening walks. The hills to the south boast healthy populations of black grouse and one of the most successful pairs of golden eagles in the country.

Sunday on the fish quay will also be a great family day out, with live entertainment and food available.

Traditional Boat Festival: 19th – 21st July Last year’s Traditional Boat Festival proved to be a great success, with around 30 traditional boats from across Scotland and Ireland in attendance. This year it is hoped that even more boats will attend. With all of the traditional boats being visible from the new main pontoon, villagers and visitors will be able to enjoy the spectacle from the walkway and pontoons. There is an exciting programme of events planned, including a variety of shoreside stalls selling locally made produce. Traditional music will also feature over the weekend with live music on the Friday and Saturday nights.


Tarbert Fair: 24th – 27th July

There will also be stalls on the Saturday and Sunday selling a variety of different seafood and craftwork. This weekend is well worth a visit!

Tarbert Fair is one of the oldest approved fairs in Tarbert, having been held since 1705. The fair visits Tarbert every year on the last Wednesday of July, with the festivities continuing over the weekend.

Tarbert (Loch Fyne) Harbour Authority Tarbert (Loch Fyne) Harbour Authority is a trust port established by an Act of Parliament in 1912. The governance of the Authority is undertaken by a board of eight trustees, four of whom are elected by the local community, three of whom are appointed and the eighth member is the Harbour Master/Port Manager. The Authority is a not-for-profit organisation recognised as a social enterprise. Like any other self financing business, it is dependent on cash flow and profits for its successful operation. All profits or surpluses are reinvested to ensure that the facilities and infrastructure are properly maintained and improved for the benefit of its users. The Authority also works closely with the local community supporting local events and providing benefits for its stakeholders through improving the leisure facilities and amenities.

Future improvements Early 2012 saw the addition of 40 berths at the harbour and the Board are now hopeful that further grant funding can be secured in order to upgrade the toilet and shower facilities as well as providing a new permanent structure to house the Harbour Office.
