Tarbert
Tarbert
The Gaelic word tairbeart means an isthmus. In Viking times, the Kings of Scots and Norway made a treaty that Norway would have possession of any land which the king could circumnavigate at the helm of his galley. He got his men to haul the galley across the isthmus here, and thus got possession of the Kintyre peninsula.
