Traditionally on the northern fringes of the historic County of Dunbarton, it is on the banks of Loch Lomond, and has a pier. It stands on an isthmus where Loch Long and Loch Lomond come close. The village of Arrochar stands at the head of Loch Long, at the other side of the isthmus. Arrochar and Tarbet railway station, on the West Highland Line, stands between the two villages. The village has a primary school (Arrochar Primary School), many hotels and B+B's, and a Tourist Information Centre.
The area around Arrochar and Tarbet has become the scene of "squirrel wars". The red squirrel is resisting the offensive by the grey squirrel taking place across Great Britain, since there is a type of woodland they find more favourable than most. Tarbet contains the Tarbet Hotel.
