Now Showing - The Waverley Paddle Steamer
The last ocean going passenger ready paddle steamer, the Waverley stops at Tarbert annually as part of its summer tours around the west coast of Scotland. It has been visiting Loch Fyne for many years and is a great experience of how travel used to be many years ago, in fact the main method of transport to and from the west coast of Scotland pre 1950s was boats, steam in particular, before the creation and popularity of cars.
The Loch Fyne Video shows the Waverley arriving at Tarbert, Loch Fyne on a rather overcast late summer day before disembarking helped by a local potter (small fishing boat) and leaving to continuing its journey, often up and down the Loch for its passengers.

Loch Fyne is synonomous with many things, foodies will of course be familiar with the Loch Fyne Restaurant and the chain of restaurants throughout the UK that grew from the small and now substantial and popular Loch Fyne Restaurant in Cairndow, at the very tip of Loch Fyne, and historians and experts on the region will know that Loch Fyne was one of the most important waters around Scotland particularly in the 1800s and early 1900s, where the loch was of course famous for Loch Fyne herring.
Tarbert, one of the Scotland's few registered herring ports, was a busy place day and night as the 'silver darling' were landed, gutted, boxed and shipped. The quay there was amass with boxes and boxes of herring to be shipped across the UK and Europe.
Loch Fyne today, despite the sighting of returning herring boats to the loch, is used for marine harvesting, such as fish farms producing salmon, and of course Scotland is slowly becoming universally recognised as the best place to taste the freshest and sweetest seafood in the UK, Loch Fyne is fished for hand dived scallop, langoustine and lobster on a daily basis by local fishing boats, and as far as fresh seafood goes, Tarbert and the Corner House Bistro offer genuine Loch Fyne seafood produce as fresh as you could possibly taste.
Through the fantastic Tarbert Seafood Festival, Nick Nairn advised that langoustine as soon as it dies or is killed, an enzyme is released into the meats of the shellfish, this in turn starts to alter the taste and freshness of the meat, slowly degrading its quality, taste and if left long enough before you cook it unrefrigerated could give you quite a poorly tummy, so take it from the professionals and food experts, the best way to eat healthy, fresh and great tasting seafood is straight out of the water and alive until the very last minute!
