Tayvallich (Scottish Gaelic: Taigh a' Bhealaich), pronounced "Tay-vee-al-ich", is a small village in the Knapdale area of Argyll and Bute, in Scotland. The village name has its origins in Gaelic, and means the "house of the pass". The village is built around a sheltered harbour on Loch Sween. It has a primary school, small caravan park, pub and village store. The local economy is based on tourism and fishing. There is also a local bus service that takes the older children to nearby Lochgilphead where the nearest high school is situated. Tayvallich has become a major sailing centre.
Tayvallich is split into two areas; Carsaig and Tayvallich.
