A Caledonian MacBrayne terminal building viewed in the summer of 1975 from a ferry which would shortly depart for Lochmaddy. The sign with a white background which can be seen by the entrance to the building reads ENQUIRIES. One suspects that the building’s uses may not have been limited to those implied by this term. It seems likely, for example, that the building will have served as a waiting room (as CalMac’s terminal buildings often do).

A comparison of the photograph with NG1599 : Tarbert/An Tairbeart from the ferry, taken in 2013, reveals that both the terminal and the part of the village lying immediately beyond it have since changed a great deal.
