Located on the shorefront of Pier Road in the popular coastal town of Tarbert, The Penthouse offers buyers an opportunity to acquire an iconic apartment in the former, historic Columba Hotel Development.

This exciting project has transformed the historic c-listed hotel into a selection of modern, high-specification apartments.

The development contains a limited number of luxurious apartments over four stories, with the magnificent Penthouse occupying the complete top floor of the building.

Access to the building is made via the keyless entrance into a ground floor lobby where a lift and staircase offer easy access to all floors, with the Penthouse benefitting from exclusive, protected access.

With coombed ceilings and stylish fittings featuring heavily in the design, this is an incredible opportunity to acquire a truly exclusive property.

The stylish, high specification copper themed kitchen sits within the walls of the intricate mansard style roof architecture and enjoys panoramic views across the water.

Much thought has been given to the design and layout, with large windows also included in the roof structure, flooding the area with light and capitalising on the stunning views across Tarbert Bay.

Adjacent to the kitchen, a combined dining/living room offers flexibility and functionality in equal measure and is the perfect place to entertain guests.

The master bedroom has an attached, modern en-suite bathroom, with stylish freestanding bath and walk in shower. A second double bedroom and family bathroom complete the accommodation.

A private staircase leads from the third floor of the property to a dedicated landing, giving opportunity for convenient storage of bikes and outdoor pursuits equipment. The landing also leads to an internal hallway containing a functional utility room along with a useful store room.

The superior specification of the Penthouse includes private lift access, keyless entrance, ethernet wiring, mains water and drainage and mist fire alarm/detection system. Two dedicated parking spaces are included with the Penthouse, both with charging points for electric vehicles.

Externally, the property is a stone's throw from the water's edge and is within easy walking distance of Tarbert town centre and its fabulous yachting marina.

A bespoke elevated decking area has been installed at the rear of the property, offering residents a place to sit and enjoy the tranquil surroundings.

Given its supreme specification and fabulous location, The Penthouse is certain to attract a significant amount of interest and early viewing is advised.


The Penthouse apartment benefits from a great position in the popular tourist destination of Tarbert. In the summer, Tarbert is host to Scotland's largest sailing regatta - the Scottish Series. There are a number of cafés and restaurants overlooking the harbour in addition to a supermarket and banking services. Tarbert Academy offers local schooling at nursery, primary and secondary level.

There is a short 9-hole golf course and two major golf courses at Machrihanish, including the Machrihanish Links - one of the finest links in the country and voted one of the top 50 courses in the UK. For field sports enthusiasts the area offers numerous fishing, stalking and shooting opportunities.

Tarbert is popular with overnight visitors as it is the last stop before the ferry service to Islay, famed around the world for its whiskies. Most Bed and Breakfasts in Tarbert provide early morning breakfasts and transport for the early Tarbert to Islay ferry which is less than 10 minutes by car on the way south to Campbeltown. Campbeltown also offers the convenience of daily flights to and from Glasgow, with the exception of a Saturday.

The main local hub is that of Lochgilphead, a town approximately 14 miles to the north and the administrative centre of Argyll and Bute. Facilities include a swimming pool, a sports centre, a hospital, supermarkets and a nine-hole golf course. The town is approximately 100 miles north of Glasgow, to which a daily bus service operates.



Entering Tarbert on the A83, make a turn onto Harbour Road next to the Bank of Scotland building and follow the road along the side of the harbour. The road eventually becomes Pier Road and The Columba building is located on the right-hand side after around half a mile.
