Alexander Campbell, West Loch Tarbert
West Loch Tarbert is a narrow sound in western Scotland, which runs southwest to northeast between Knapdale on the north and the peninsula of Kintyre on the south. A two-mile isthmus at its northeast end separates the West Loch from the East Loch port of Tarbert. The Campbell family traveled ten miles up West Loch Tarbert in a rowboat, with Alexander as one of the rowers for the entire trip, arriving late on October 29,1808.
