THE LITTLE PORT OF TARBERT AT THE HEAD OF A SEA LOCH OF HARRIS

THE LITTLE PORT OF TARBERT AT THE HEAD OF A SEA LOCH OF HARRIS

The great island of the Outer Hebrides which comprises Lewis and Harris is almost divided in the southern part by two arms of the sea called West Loch Tarbert and East Loch Tarbert. On the isthmus between them - and it is only a third of a mile wide - is the town of Tarbert. Here there is an hotel for the fishing and some wool-carding factories, and there is also a clearing house for the famous tweed scented with peat smoke, to which Harris has given its name. Prince Charlie once walked from Tarbert to Stornoway to find a ship to take him to France.
