Tarbet Lodge on the Isle of Jura is the perfect large holiday house to rent to escape the stresses and strains of modern living. Together with family and friends, the dog and fishing rod, feel the tension slip away as you make the ferry trip to Islay and then on to beautiful Jura, followed by a short drive to the idyll that is this delightful lodge near the shore.

With spectacular views across Tarbert Bay to the Sound of Jura, this property has an area of formal ground with garden furniture, and also has direct access to a sandy beach. Enjoy the charm and comfort of this delightfully furnished holiday accommodation, with its drawing room with open fire and superb views, a formal dining room, and numerous bedrooms and bathrooms. A large AGA in the kitchen gives a warm welcome after a days fishing or walking.

Nature lovers will love the abundance of wildlife with red deer, eagles and otters to be spotted, whilst for hill walkers there are the Pap's of Jura to conquer. Alternatively take it easy and simply enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the beaches or a day’s fishing. Trout fishing is included in the rent and arrangements can be made for additional sport and fishing.

This is truly a self catering holiday in which to wind down and the evenings can be spent playing games or chatting over a glass of Jura's world famous malt whiskey.

For those moments of reality there is a telephone available in the lodge with access to the outside world, and a small village shop 12 miles away at Craighouse is well stocked for vital provisions.

Private water supply.

    Tarbert Lodge reviews
    This is a classic Highland lodge in a wild location in beautiful Jura. It has a family feel, with traditional furnishings that give the place a homely atmosphere. There is lots of space, nice bedding and it's well provisioned, particularly the kitchen which has cutlery and utensils in abundance. The main complaint from the teenagers is that Wifi is only in one area of the house, and can be a little patchy
    Mr Mykura - July 2016
    Nearest beach a bit disappointing for young children - muddy and quite difficult to access. Ardlussa beach lovely but had to drive. Walking good. Café in Craighouse disappointing (fish fingers etc) but Jura Hotel fine. Good visit to distillery. The estate staff were very friendly and helpful. Lovely, spacious and comfortable house which accommodated us all well, but some of kitchen equipment a bit tired - one dishwasher didn't work properly, nor did the tumble dryer. Lots of hot water and constantly hot towel rails, though.
    Mr Dowse - July 2015
    Tarbert House is a lovely family house in a great spot, away from the bustle of normal busy life. Lots of bedrooms and bathrooms (no shower but that isn't a problem with copious amounts of hot water and lovely cast iron baths) and superb big sitting room. The house is traditional and perfect for large gatherings without the need for complete mod cons. Lots of walks, hidden coves and fishing to be had and the estate staff are very friendly and helpful.
    Mr Cassels - August 2014
    Wonderful island and house
    Mr Simmers - April 2014
    We have been going to Scotland for the last 20 years. And then we lost the lodge in the Highlands opposite Skye, due to demolition. Location is everything for us. Tarbet is gorgeous because its remote, its well furnished and its perfect for our team! I want to chill for a week, especially as its just a week, and you have to get into holiday mode fast! If you have a group of people you know, love, then its perfect. You can chill, you can walk, you can swim (be brave Scotland is a bit colder than Runswick, near home). The "stand and stare" factor is brill! You need to plan menus and supplies but heh we are used to doing this. On a slow day you see a sea eagle, birds galore and more! We are not heavy outdoor people but we do like to sit back, walk, swim and chill with a house goup we know and get on with. The children play together! They dont need the techy stuff. Recommend!
    Mrs Riddolls - June 2012
    Jura is quite the best Island I have been especially if you stock up on provisions and the weather is kind.
    Mr Owen - April 2012
    We very much enjoyed our stay at Tarbert Lodge. The setting is wonderful and in the house there is a sense of space and comfort. We saw almost no one on the island - I cannot recommend Tarbert Lodge highly enough if you want a week away and are looking for peace and quiet.
