In response to issues raised by the community, we plan to build a campervan site on the outskirts of Tarbert. The site will have 6 pitches with electric hook-up for campervans and motorhomes only. The site is located 5 minutes walk from the village and the ferry port. It is hoped that visitors looking to stop around the port for early departures and late arrivals will use this site, rather than add to the pressure on existing parking.
A funding award for the project has been made by VisitScotland, through its Rural Tourism Infrastructure Fund. North Harris Trading will contribute the remaining 25% of capital costs.
Construction is planned to start in Summer 2023.
