Tarbert Traditional Boat Festival 2017

28 June 2017

Over 40 traditional boats from all over the UK are expected to come and visit Tarbert for the Tarbert Traditional Boat Festival. It makes for a great atmosphere, with stalls, live music and other celebrations taking place over the festival weekend.

Shemaron will be open for viewing and chat at the Tarbert Traditional Boat Festival, 15th & 16th July, with new signage and information about some of the artefacts which adds even more interest to the onboard tour!

The team have been working hard to recreate the feel of an authentic 1950s ring net boat, especially in the fo’c’s’le. The scene has been set, showing where the fishermen went in search for herring and how they passed their time whilst away at sea, among plenty of other interesting facts and stories.
