Tarbet (Gaelic: Tairbeart hole Laomainn), not to be confused with Tarbert, is a town in the east of the Scottish Council Area Argyll and Bute. It is located on the northwest shore of Loch Lomond about 21 kilometers north of Helensburgh and 23 kilometers east of Inveraray. In 1971 292 inhabitants were counted in Tarbet. In more recent census data, the village is no longer listed separately. Tarbet is located at the east end of a valley which runs along the shortest route between the Loch Lomond and the inlet hole at Long Arrochar. In the past, ships through this 2.5 km long valley were dragged across the country to switch between the two waters. South of Tarbet is the Stuckgowan House, a monument of the highest Scottish monument Category A. This is a built in 1820 in Tudor Gothic style country house on the banks of Loch Lomond.
