More about this scene

This is an inlet of Loch Fyne. West Loch Tarbert is just a couple of miles distant; it is said that in 1093 Magnus Barefoot dragged his longship overland between the two lochs, claiming Kintyre as a Norse possession. Tarbert is a celebrated fishing port renowned for its seafood—prawns, mackerel, herring and scallops are all landed. Its ancient castle overlooks the harbour.
