Redman experiences Tarbert’s world famous seafood heritage

I was delighted to attend the latest Tarbert Seafood Festival where I had the opportunity to experience Tarbert’s world famous seafood heritage.

While attending the first day of this two day celebration of the fish and shellfish from the waters of Loch Fyne, I was able to see first hand stalls lining the harbour side offering many local seafood delicacies along with cookery demonstrations.

It was great to taste some incredible dishes the Tarbert Seafood Festival had to offer and it was also wonderful to see it so well attended by visitors from across the world and local Tarbert residents.

Festivals like this are a massive boost to the local economy and a terrific advertisement for the village of Tarbert and the wider area.

I'm looking forward to attending next year's seafood festival which I'm sure will be will be even bigger.
